The Southeast Asia region’s priorities are aligned with the Vision and Strategic Plan for ASEAN Cooperation Food, Agriculture and Forestry towards 2025, in which expansion of agroforestry is mentioned as a means to increase resilience to climate change, natural disasters and other shocks.
ICRAF's work in the region contributes to land-use planning for low-emissions development and multiple environmental services and ecosystem services’ models, policy development and business cases.
New areas of importance in the region are ‘green growth’ initiatives that bring together all sectors, including the financial sector, such as is the case with the Tropical Landscapes Finance Facility, which was launched in Jakarta, Indonesia in October 2016. As in other regions we continue to make headway with improving policies and laws, as we did in the case of the revision of the National Forestry Law of Viet Nam.
