The event was part of an Australian-funded project on forest planting policies to balance the demands of small-scale forest owners, the wood processing industry, and the environment in Laos and Vietnam.

The conference analysed the sector’s contributions to GDP by reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation.

Participants recommended policies that would encourage planters to switch to larger scale afforestation under sustainable management.
