The ASEAN Social Forestry Network (ASFN)

ASEAN Stories of Social Forestry in the region

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. Drawing out multi-stakeholder experiences in the region, ASFN continues to build up on linkages that promote further collaborative regional responses to national and local issues governing forests and peoples. Social forestry brings equitable economic benefits for indigenous peoples
and forest-dependent communities, bringing intangible benefits like providing clean water, maintaining the climate and mitigating
climate change.

This film brings forward its valuable contribution to conservation, ecosystem services, local economy, food security, cultural identity, creative economy, making ASEAN a model for other regions.
