Distribution of APFNet members

APFNet membership comprises 26 economies and five international organizations in the Asia-Pacific region.

APFNet works in the following subregions: the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS); Southeast Asia (except the GMS); South Asia; Greater Central Asia; Oceania; North America; and Latin America.

As APFNet is an organization constituted by its members, it therefore aims to help these members. Its actions will always be guided by the needs and wishes of the members first and foremost.

APFNet helps to promote and improve the level of forest restoration and sustainable forest management in the region through capacity development, information sharing, policy dialogue and projects.
