    • Where are we?
      • Southeast Asia Program
    • Southeast Asia
      Regional characteristics
      Between 1995 and 2010, Southeast Asia lost 32.8 million ha of its forests and woodlands and 18.2 million ha of its natural exploitable forests, equalling 11% and 14% respectively of the 1995 area.
      The demands and expectations of lowland capital cities and economic centres for regular flows of clean water from the uplands cannot be realistically met.
      Inconsistent or contradictory policies and conflicts over rights of use and access are main determinants of unsustainable natural resource management and poverty in the uplands and forest margins.
      Climate change is a present reality in Southeast Asia; Heat waves, droughts, floods and tropical cyclones have been more intense and frequent, causing extensive damage to property, assets and loss of human life. Smallholder and subsistence farmers are especially vulnerable to the impact of climate change.
      Such issues play a major role in our agenda.

    • Staffing Outlook
      Staffing Numbers
    • Country Priorities
      Philippines: community-based natural resources management through the Landcare approach, improving farming and governance systems in the uplands, climate-change mitigation and adaptation strategies, and rewards for environmental services
      Vietnam: capacity building and partnerships emphasizing research on payments for environmental services, role of trees on farm and landscapes, and agroforestry as a distinct entry point for climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies
      China: research on science bases of biodiversity and carbon assets, trade-offs among different land-use options and national capacity development of the agriculture and forestry sectors. These activities address the country’s environmental problems such as land degradation in dryland ecosystems, effects of climate change and deforestation. Research activities in the Himalayas, Mekong region, and North Korea
      Thailand: emerging cross-country partnerships and networking relationships among key colleagues and institutions in the region by helping strengthen research, education and information exchange
    • Indonesia program long term priorities
      • Promote agroforestry for increasing farmers welfare as well as for improving environment
      • Promote agroforetsry as a strategy for adaptation and mitigation actions.
      • Produce high-quality and applicable policy research to potentially support policy development under the context of sustainable environment and improved livelihood
      • Enhancing stakeholder awareness and technical capacity regarding the production and management of high quality germplasm
      • Developing viable models for community trees nurseries
      • Improving smallholder timber production systems
      • Understanding smallholder marketing systems and identifying ways to enhance farmers’ marketing roles

    • Key accomplishments 2010
      • East Asia Node to cover neighboring countries and secure resources and provide ICRAF expertise
