The ASEAN Social Forestry Network (ASFN) is a government driven social forestry network in Southeast Asia, with main goal to strengthen ASEAN Cooperation in Social Forestry through the sharing of information and knowledge. ASFN links government forestry policy-makers directly with other network members from civil society, research organizations, academia, private sector and experts of related fields – all who share a vision of seeing social forestry grow in ASEAN Member States. ASFN’s role is to exchange experiences and share knowledge promoting policy and practices, research and capacity building, as well as learning interventions, through various means to targeted audiences. The establishment of ASFN was deliberated during the ASEAN Workshop on Social Forestry held in March 2005 in Madiun, East Java, Indonesia, and was endorsed during the Eighth Meeting of the ASEAN Senior Officials on Forestry (ASOF) in August 2005 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
