in Asian and the Pacific
(8 to 19 November 2010 Kunming China)
1. Background

Forests provide multiple functions and the ability of forests to sustain economic livelihoods, support social and community development, address climate change, maintain biodiversity and provide other needs and benefits depends critically on how they are managed. Sustainable forest resource management aims to ensure that the goods and services derived from the forest meet present-day needs while securing their continued availability and contribution to long-term development, and encompasses almost all aspects of the conservation and use of forests. The availability of an intact legal system and policy regime to forest sector and practices undoubtedly matter to facilitate forest management in a sustainable way. However, lack of forest legislation, the insufficiency of judicial and regulatory structures and weak governance on forests, which do exist in the Asia and the Pacific, all work to slow the progress towards SFM, and contribute to severe forest degradation, deforestation, as well as illegal activities and trade with deep, complex and extremely varied causes. To address these issues and promote rational management of forest resources, measures have being undertaken in the region to improve forest law compliance and governance, with concerted efforts being made at both national and regional levels by countries and organizations. APFNet, which recognized sustainable forest management as its mission and one priority, would like to complement and contribute to address forest threats. The workshop, the 4th of "the Forest Resource Management series" under APFNet capacity building programs since 2008, is designed to identify obstacles to enhance progress in rationalizing the policy and legal framework and building institutional capacity, and to contribute to improving forest law enforcement and governance by taking stock of the relative successes and failures of past and current regional and national initiatives, recommending steps to move forward by exchanging experiences, views and perspectives among countries in the region. Moreover, the outcomes of the workshop will pave the way for conducting future research and case study. Topical Issues
Regional overview on forest resource management Legal framework and some of the tools currently available to better promote SFM Forestry legal system and forestry administration in some particular countries Case study: legalization of community-based forest management system Recommend approaches for strengthening policies, institutions and practices of forest management to reduce the gap between theory and practice Programme Overview for APFNet's Workshop on Forest Resources Management in Asian and the Pacific (November 8-19, Kunming City, China) Target Group
The workshop is best suited for government officials, policy makers, resource managers and representatives of programs and projects, and will be limited to a maximum of 18 individuals to ensure to enhance learning opportunities and adequate exchange of ideas. The workshop will draw primarily on professional expertise within the Asia-Pacific region, and use a mix of guest lectures covering fundamental and topical issues related to forest resource management, forest laws and policy as well as governance in particular, carefully selected case studies within and beyond the Asia Pacific region, presentations from participants on their country status in this regard, and field visits to showcase performance of forest resource management at Training Language: English
Expected outcome
 An increased understanding of the current status facing SFM in the Asia Pacific region;  An increased understanding of the regulatory, market and environmental factors that are acting as drivers to either encourage or inhibit SFM;  An increased understanding of the role of science and technology for SFM  An appreciation of some of the tools currently available to better promote SMF; and  An appreciation of the key gaps and capacity building needs that needs to be addressed in order to accelerate progress towards SFM.

Territory Area:394.000 square kilometres (the eighth largest province in China)
Climate: Because of its highly complex terrain, the climate of Yunnan shows great diversity.
Major characteristics include small temperature variations year round but with considerable variation between day and night; distinct dry and rainy seasons and diversified climatic types varying with change in elevation. In the province, climate zones ranging from the frigid, the temperate, and the subtropical to the tropical arc distributed from the northwest to the southeast. A typical altitude-dependant climate is also found in the high mountains and deep gorges. The diversity of Yunnan's climate can be best described with a local saying that "You can experience all four seasons in the same mountain and each season is just a few miles away from each Provincial CapitalKunming City
Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province with a history of more than 2400 years, owes its importance to the fact that it was the gateway to the celebrated Silk Road that facilitated trade with Tibet, Sichuan, Myanmar and India. Today, the city is the political, economical and cultural center of Yunnan and the provincial center for transport, science and technology. Consequently, it has become the most popular center for tourism in Southwest China, its alluring highland scenery, bewitching karst landform, varied and exotic habitats and customs and places of historical interest can be found at major scenic spots such as Dianchi Lake, Stone Forest, the Village of Ethnic Culture, Grand View Pavilion and 99's International Horticultural Exposition Kunming enjoys a pleasant climate and does its best to live up to its title of 'the City of Eternal Spring'. However, the average temperature is expected to be 8-20 during the workshop
at the end of autumn with slightly lower temperatures in the morning and evening.
