Forest Regeneration in the Philippines

FAO's 2011 State of the World's Forests report, published to coincide with the International Year of Forests, highlights some positive and encouraging trends. Asia and the Near East are showing an increase in forest regeneration and replanting projects.One such project is the "Advancing the Application of Assisted Natural Regeneration for Effective Low-cost Forest Restoration" project, carried out on the Philippine Island of Bohol.

Presented in this video, it highlights the vital role of local communities in managing, conserving and developing forests. In particular, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) partnered with the Philippines government to promote ANR (Assisted Natural Regeneration) as a way of regenerating the forests.
