ASFCC Flyer 2017

The ASEAN-Swiss Partnership on Social Forestry and Climate Change (ASFCC) is a Partnership Programme of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) with the Government of Switzerland that aims to contribute to the ASEAN Mandate and Policy Framework through support for the ASEAN Working Group on Social Forestry (AWG-SF/ previously known as ASFN) and the ASEAN Multisectoral Framework on Climate Change towards Food Security (AFCC). With assistance from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), the ASFCC addresses interlinked issues of food security, poverty and climate change particularly in forested landscapes in Southeast Asia through Cooperation and partnership Programme activities with ASEAN Member States (AMS). The ASFCC supports the AWG-SF’s eforts to enhance links between government forestry policy-makers with other network members from civil society, research organizations, academia, private sectors and experts of related felds-all who share an interest in people-oriented approaches to forest policy and management. Through technical support for the AFCC, the ASFCC contributes to sustainable, efficient and efective use of ASEAN’s land, forest, water and aquatic resources by minimizing their risks, impacts and contributions to climate change.
