2-6 October 2023 Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
30th Session of the Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission

The 30th Session of the Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission (APFC) will bring together government forest officials, representatives of international, regional, and subregional organizations that address forest-related issues, and representatives of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the private sector. Participants will discuss forest and landscape restoration and building resilience to climate change and biodiversity, among other forest-related topics. The Australian Government’s Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry will host the meeting.

As one of six regional forestry commissions of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), the Commission serves as a policy and technical forum for the countries in Asia-Pacific to address the most pressing forest issues in the region and provide advice to the FAO forestry programme and forest policy. The Commission meets every two years to review progress, make recommendations, and set new agendas.

This regional meeting is one of a series of meetings that will inform the 27th Session of the FAO Committee on Forestry (COFO).
