Combatting illegal logging: Lessons from the EU FLEGT Action Plan
Ten years after its adoption, it is time to look back, analyse the lessons learned and identify future prospects.
This brochure outlines the origins of the Action Plan, the concerns which led to its introduction and the progress that has been made. It analyses the implications it had on the overall governance in producing countries, on trade and on development. It identifies the changes that have occurred during the last ten years, both in developing countries and in the EU. It also analyses the global trends and changes that have implications for forests and related land use and for the Action Plan. It draws lessons from experience to date and suggests some ways forward.
