30 years of empowering people for healthy forests #ForestsAreUs


Our family of 96 individuals seeks to promote the value of community forestry across the Asia - Pacific at the regional and national level. With seven country programmes and one regional office, the Center is dedicated to ensuring a more sustainable future for the global community.

Our mission is furthered through the integrated workings of three units:

Knowledge Management and Communications leads regional communication, supports national-level communication, and designs and administers knowledge management systems at all levels.

Programme Coordination and Technical Services coordinates programmes and projects, and oversees technical services delivered from Country Programmes, multicountry and regional approaches

Corporate Services manages human resources, finance and accounting, office administration and information technology.
