Within the context of RECOFTC’s overall goal to strengthen rights, improve governance and ensure equitable benefits to forest dependent men, women and other excluded groups, RECOFTC has been implementing a Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (FAO-RAP) funded project entitled “Mainstreaming Gender into Forest Policies”.

Specific activities under this project include assessing the integration of gender into national forest policies, providing policy recommendations, producing knowledge for the development of training materials for mainstreaming gender, enhancing the capacity of policy makers on gender mainstreaming, communicating and disseminating the findings and producing policy briefs focused on specific country cases. The project target countries are the eight developing Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission (APFC) member countries, namely, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Fiji, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

With a view to enhance capacity of policy makers on gender mainstreaming into forest policies, a one-day regional Workshop was jointly convened by RECOFTC and FAO-RAP. The Workshop was hosted by RECOFTC in Rotorua, New Zealand, as an important pre-session of the 25th Session of the APFC.

The workshop provided opportunity for the participants to present and discuss current challenges and opportunities with regards to integrating gender perspectives into national forest policy highlighting their country contexts. As there were more than a dozen stakeholders in policy-making representing eight APFC member countries, the workshop provided a platform for cross-country learning and sharing of experience in integrating gender perspectives into forest policy.
