Agriculture, Forestry and Land-Use Working Group
A LEDS GP Working Group
The LEDS GP Agriculture, Forestry and Land Use (AFOLU) Working Group was first convened at the Asia LEDS Forum in 2013 and was jointly organized by USAID's supported Lowering Emissions in Asia's Forests (LEAF) program and the United States Forest Service (USFS). The AFOLU Working Group serves as a platform for engaging decision makers, practitioners, and researchers while working towards integrating low emissions development activities in the AFOLU sector.
The AFOLU Working Group will engage with other networks and other LEDS sectors to promote low emissions development in the AFOLU sector. The working group seeks to develop innovative approaches to problem solving and capacity building of member individuals and organizations. The working group will also strive to harmonize and integrate solutions across existing communities, provide training and capacity building, and will work towards expanding over time to include additional stakeholders.
