FLEGT Week 2015: Information sessions on FLEGT progress and achievements, the Report

Highlights

  • There has been significant progress under the EU FLEGT Action Plan on Voluntary Partnership Agreements, support to producer countries, public procurement policies, private sector initiatives and the EU Timber Regulation.

  • Progress on conflict timber and on finance and investment has lagged behind action on other aspects of the Action Plan.
