The AWG-SF, the ASEAN Working Group on Social Forestry is a transformation of the ASEAN Social Forestry Network (ASFN), 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. The AWG-SF is an ASEAN Working Group that reports to the ASEAN Senior Officials on Forestry (ASOF) and subsequently to the ASEAN Ministerial on Agriculture and Forestry (AMAF).

The endorsement to become AWG-SF was deliberated during the 19th ASOF Meeting on 4-6 August 2016 in Vientiane, Lao PDR and the 38th ASEAN Ministers on Agriculture and Forestry (AMAF) Meeting in September 2016 in Singapore.
