Postponement Update: 2020 IFLA World Congress


Dear IFLA APR Community and Colleagues, 


I hope you are doing well and staying safe amidst the coronavirus pandemic. 

Due to the unforeseen pandemic situation, the 2020 IFLA World Congress has to be postponed to 2021 with the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (ILAM) continuing the hosting right for the congress next year. With the revised line up of the IFLA World Congress from 2021 onward, our Asia Pacific regional congresses are also affected. 

However, I am happy to inform you that we have successfully worked out the revised schedule for the following APR Congress with our executive committee in consultation with the affected national associations. The final decision and agreement took into consideration the documented approval of the congress hosting for 2021 and 2023 during the regional council meeting in 2018 Singapore and confirmation in 2019 Philippines. It also respected the mutual exchanges and agreements made between the affected national associations. 


Rescheduled IFLA APR congress and council meeting as follows:

Year 2023 in Japan (JLAU) - originally in 2021

Year 2024 in Taiwan (CTLAS) - originally in 2023


Rescheduled IFLA World Congress for your information:

2021   World Congress in Malaysia by ILAM

2022   World Congress in Korea by KILA

2023   World Congress in Kenya/Sweden (Joint hosting)
