The Workshop on Mainstreaming Degraded Forest Restoration in Forestry Strategic Plans was held from 17 to 19 December 2014 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in partnership with the Forestry Administration of Cambodia and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Seventy-four representatives attended the workshop from 14 economies (Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Fiji, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, the Philippines, and Viet Nam) and from five international and regional organizations (APFNet, FAO, International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), RECOFTC – The Center for People and Forests, and the Bagong Pagasa Foundation).
