Lowering Emissions in Asia's Forests Program Fact Sheet

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) recognizes that Asia’s forests contribute greatly to the region and the communities that depend on them and is constantly seeking innovative ways to encourage better forest management.

As part of the Lower Mekong Initiative (LMI), the Lowering Emissions in Asia’s Forests program is a five-year regional effort which was started in early 2011 to promote regional collaboration on forest management. The program’s regional approach is to strengthen the technical capacity of Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam, as well as other countries, to improve forest management.
