  • The conference is called “Knowledge Exchange Forum on promoting rights and livelihoods through forest and farm producer organisations”.

    The conference is co-organised by The International Family Forestry Alliance, with the Asian Farmers Association for sustainable rural development and RECOFTC - The Center for People and Forests and Tree Bank, associated with the Forest and Farm Facility conference on challenges and opportunities of forest and farm producer organizations.

    The objective of the conference, by creating an exchange forum in Asia, is to facilitate networking between existing associations and provide them a platform to build their capacity by sharing experience.

    The outcome of the conference will be among other things, a background paper, and action plan and to set up a forum of family, community and farmers associations in forested landscapes.
