Rainforests are the natural treasures of the Asia-Pacific region. They account for 26 percent of the region’s land area, and support the livelihoods of around 450 million people. They contain a wealth of natural heritage and biodiversity, provide vital ecosystem services and play an important role for economic growth.
Our future depends on the values we place on our forests and the people who sustainably manage and conserve them.
