Respect for differences
APFNet respects the diversity of views and differences in opinions, beliefs, pathways and approaches that exist for adapting and adopting SFM and effective forest rehabilitation. APFNet will continue to undertake its work on the premise that there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution to achieving SFM in the Asia-Pacific region.
APFNet seeks to assist its members to accelerate positive change on the ground. Decisions and activities, therefore, will be action-oriented at the grassroots level.
Creative and innovative thinking
APFNet will remain innovative, inquisitive and exploratory. APFNet encourages thinking outside the box and promotes the exploration of new ideas and approaches for addressing forest-related issues.
Member needs are the first priority
APFNet is a member-driven network. The needs and priorities of members will always be the first consideration when decisions are made about programmes and activities
