Learning from four decades of implementation, APFNet’s senior consultant David Cassells will share his perspectives from field visits and research at the Three-North Programme to the IUCN World Conservation Congress. Policymakers, field practitioners and other forest stakeholders inside and outside China can draw from China’s experience in the development and implementation of these large-scale programmes. The world desperately needs more forests of sufficient quality in the right places to help address the challenges of climate change mitigation and adaptation and to help meet peoples’ environmental, social and economic needs. The Three-North Programme and its successors’ scale of implementation and achievements has many lessons for all who are interested in the sustainable conservation, management and restoration of forests.
