Organization: Asian Forest Cooperation Organization (AFoCO)

About the Organization
As the world faces compounding challenges of climate change and pandemic risks, the international community continues its collective efforts to contribute to achieving Sustainable Development Goals. Although Asia is laden with rich forest resources, it remains highly vulnerable to the threats of climate change and forest devastation due to socio-economic growth pressures and natural disasters.
AFoCO is a treaty-based intergovernmental organization that promotes cooperation towards achieving the shared SDGs and regional and global forestry objectives. Through action-oriented practices, AFoCO aims to contribute to the global goals of increasing forest cover and implementing the Paris Agreement on climate change.
AFoCO envisions a greener Asia with resilient forests, landscapes and communities through enhanced cooperation in climate change adaptation and mitigation, sustainable forest management and livelihood improvement programs.
