The purpose of the Project Manual (the Manual) is to provide guidelines for all stakeholders for projects under the Asian Forest Cooperation Organization (AFoCO), primarily the National Focal Point (NFP), the Secretariat, project implementers, including the implementing agency (IA), the donor(s), consultants, suppliers of goods and services, monitoring team, and evaluation team, among others.

The manual exemplifies procedures and methodologies to be applied in the project management from the stage of concept note development up to final or end-of-project evaluation. As deemed necessary, projects which are partially and/or fully supported by external funds will follow the principles and requirements of the respective donor(s). In the event where there are no specific principles or requirements provided by the donor(s), the project should generally follow the basic principles of this manual.
