Bot sea presentation final 1

  1. 1. Where are we?<br /><ul><li>Southeast Asia Program </li></li></ul><li>Southeast Asia<br />Regional characteristics<br />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.<br />The demands and expectations of lowland capital cities and economic centres for regular flows of clean water from the uplands cannot be realistically met. <br />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. <br />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.<br />Such issues play a major role in our agenda. <br />

  32. 32. Country Priorities<br />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<br />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<br />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<br />Thailand: emerging cross-country partnerships and networking relationships among key colleagues and institutions in the region by helping strengthen research, education and information exchange<br />
