  • The European Union has launched the Map of FLEGT projects, a new interactive tool for sharing information and coordinating action in support of the EU FLEGT Action Plan.
  • FLEGT combats illegal logging and fosters good forest governance through a combination of measures involving Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade.

The Map provides detailed information on project objectives, progress, budgets and participants, as well as stories, photos and videos.
  • The Map includes some 100 FLEGT projects funded by the European Union, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID), Germany’s corporation for international cooperation (GIZ) and other organisations. This number is growing as more FLEGT organisations add their projects.

You can customise the Map to showcase your organisation’s interests and FLEGT actions. The Map is already embedded in the websites of the European Commission, FAO, Capacity4dev and the EU FLEGT Facility.
