ASFCC has worked with ASEAN countries to strengthen and promote social forestry approaches. This work has been undertaken particularly in the context of, and in response to, climate change. As part of its activities, a Learning Group (LG), a sharing and learning forum made of representatives from ASEAN countries and ASFCC partners, was established. This activity is recognized as a flagship activity of AWG-SF and ASFCC.
Six LG workshops were organized in Chainat (3-7 September 2012), Chiang Mai (18-23 February 2013), Bangkok (1-4 July 2013), Nan (13-15 October 2014), Krabi (17-20 August 2015), and again in Chiang Mai (2-8 October 2016). These workshops were attended by representatives from ASEAN countries and ASFCC partners who are working with community forestry (CF) issues. The LG members have developed a series of stories from ASEAN countries showcasing successful experiences of sustainable forestry practice from the communities.
