Asia-Pacific Regional Meeting (APRM) is one of annual IFSA events that involves forestry students in the regions to discuss regional topics and promote the effectiveness of IFSA work regionally in the future. The first meeting was originated as Asia Regional Meeting (ARM). In 2013, two regions in IFSA (Asia and Oceania) merged together to form Asia-Pacific region. The first of Asia-Pacific Regional Meeting was held in Kookmin University Seoul, South Korea. The second meeting was held in University of Kyoto Japan and the next APRM-2017 will be held in Bogor Agricultural University Indonesia. It is such a great honor to organize APRM in Indonesia.
The theme of APRM-2017 is Forest Value Towards Sustainable Development Goals. It is dedicated to one of United Nation’s missions to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Furthermore, we consider the global issues to be concerned specifically related to forestry such as land degradation, energy crisis, global warming and climate change. We aim to increase knowledge and interest of students towards the issues in order to achieve a sustainable future and to face it particularly in Asia-Pacific region.
