25 Feb 2020     


Demonstration on Sustainable Forest Management and Restoration in Hilly and Low Mountain Area of Southern China (2016P2-CAF)


Research Institute of Forestry, Chinese Academy of Forestry;


48 months, Jan 2017- Dec 2020


To promote restoration and sustainable management of forest which focus on the improvement of forest ecosystem productivity and forest carbon storage in hilly and low mountain area of Southern China. It is anticipated to bring forward forest restoration technologies and models. The results are expected to enhance both technological and management capacities of hilly and low mountain areas of Southern China in sustainable forest management and restoration, improve the quality of forest, increase forest carbon storage, improve living standards of local residents in the forest zone and thus set an example for its kind in the Asia-Pacific region in future.



  1. Developing and demonstrating effective technological methods and strategies on sustainable management and restoration of forest at landscape level;

  2. Establishing the carbon accounting methodology for SFM and restoration at the project level; and

  3. Promoting knowledge and experience exchange in SFM and restoration among Asian-Pacific region.
