Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development: Developing into a Useful Multi-stakeholder Platform for Experience Sharing and Networking


- The APFSD has grown into a useful multi-stakeholder platform for sharing experiences and networking around sustainable development.
- It is important to examine whether stakeholder engagement provides meaningful space for the stakeholders and whether it is built on the “minimum requirement” of protecting and respecting human rights.
- Subregional platforms can foster dialogues among different stakeholders, which is difficult to hold at a larger platform.
