APFNet Strategic Plan 2011-2015  2011

 
The purpose of this plan is to identify key priorities to guide its operations so it might best contribute to meeting APFNet’s mission and objectives over this period. APFNet also wishes to establish its long-term governance arrangements based on the plan to sustain the vitality of the APFNet. Based on research and analysis of regional needs and concerns as well as the contributive findings from its launch symposia and other discussions, APFNet has prioritized its activities into four key areas that have the strongest learning and leverage potential in relation to the mission and objectives of APFNet. These areas include promoting forest rehabilitation to meet multifunctional objectives; improving forest management to reduce forest loss and degradation; enhancing the socio-economic benefits of forests; and monitoring progress towards the APEC 2020 forest cover objective. As the APFNet develops, the priorities for APFNet activities will be further amended and improved in the changing context. Download
