Immature trees, saplings and seedlings left in place after logging comprise an in-situ reservoir of valuable plant life. This paper summarizes the discussions at the workshop. Methods of reforesting certain kinds of degraded lands already exist but these are not sufficient for all cases, and also rely heavily on exotic species.

Some of these techniques are reviewed and issues requiring resolution are discussed. Potential measures of likely success or failure of forest rehabilitation programes are by: 3/11/ Review of forest rehabilitation in the Asia-Pacific Region: Lessons from the past 1.

Indonesia alone is estimated to have 36 million ha of depleted forests requiring rehabilitation. Apart from 20 million ha of Imperata cylindrica grasslands (alang-alang), there are 16 million ha of logged-over forests with a remaining tree volume of less than 39 m3 ha- ` (ITTO.

Rehabilitation of degraded forests and lands is a most urgent matter requiring enrichment of ecosystems and sustainable use of degraded areas at regional and global scales. In a logged- over forests, where former ecosystems more or less remain, the development of methods to accelerate natural regeneration is needed (Forest Agency and ITTO ).

Rehabilitation of Coastal Forests Damaged by Natural Hazards in the Asia-Pacific Region. It is an output of the ITTO/ISME Pre-Project [ITTO/ISME PPD/07 Rev. 1(F)] entitled Restoration of Mangroves and other Coastal Forests Damaged by Tsunamis and other Natural Hazards in the Asia-Pacific Region.

The manual includes introductory. Although the emphasis in forestry policies has recently been turned towards more sustainable management practices, the major challenge of Indonesian forest resource management will be the successful rehabilitation of logged-over low-volume forests and reclamation of extensive Imperata grasslands, as part of the general land-use planning.

A starting point for these would be the establishment of reliable forest statistics and, subsequently, formulation of long-term forestry. PD 32/93 Rev. 2 (F), “Rehabilitation of Logged-over Forests in Asia-Pacific Region, Sub-project III” (JOFCA).

In this new methodology, forest status is assessed on the basis of canopy density (JOFCA). The methodology is presently identified as the Forest Canopy Density.

Chan and S. Baba(ITTO/ISME) Price:JPY1, (with Tax). Mangrove forests along the coastlines in the Asia-Pacific region provide building materials for traditional homes, shelter fish and wildlife, protect communities from tsunamis and typhoons, and store more carbon than any other forested ecosystem in the world.

Despite all they do for humans and the planet, mangrove forests are threatened by over harvesting and rising sea levels. In the forestry sector, the depletion and degradation of forests continued to persist in parts of the Asia and Pacific region, as millions of hectares had been swept by excessive logging, forest.

Extensive plans for rehabilitation through forest village and forest plantation projects failed for lack of local participation (Apichai and Danai ; Sasaki ). In the eastern region, forests covered more than 5 million rai in In Regreening the Bare Hills: Tropical Forest Restoration in the Asia-Pacific Region, David Lamb explores how reforestation might be carried out both to conserve biological diversity and to improve the livelihoods of the rural poor.

While both issues have attracted considerable attention in recent years, this book takes a significant step, by integrating ecological and silvicultural knowledge within the context.

Tropical deforestation in the Asia-Pacific Region has accelerated in Lhe last decade, seriously depleting the forest resource base.

Most forest loss results from agricultural clearing, but is generally preceded by forest degradation from destructive logging (Southeast Asia) or overuse of forest resources (South Asia).
