The EU regulation that establishes the FLEGT licensing scheme - voluntary partnership agreements

25 April 2012 to 27 April 2012
in Brussels (Belgium)
Organised byFLEGT TEAM

Forests, and particularly tropical forests, play a major role for livelihoods
as resource and as safety nets for some of the most vulnerable population,
for the economy of developing countries, but also in terms of biodiversity.
Their role in terms of climate change adaptation and mitigation, has been
recently outlined in the context of the UNFCCC, with the ongoing discussions
on REDD (Reduction of emissions from deforestation and forest degradation).
In that global context, fight against illegal logging and governance issues
remain one of the top priorities of the European Union, and can clearly
contribute to address some of the above-mentioned challenges. The EU Action
Plan for Forest law enforcement, governance and trade (FLEGT) has been
adopted in 2003. It sets out measures to improve forest sector governance,
combat illegal logging and curb the related trade in illegally harvested
timber. Among the major elements of the Action Plan are the establishment of
Voluntary Partnership Agreements and the EU timber regulation.
European Commission and Member States have funded a number of projects on
FLEGT, implemented by private sector federations, civil society
organisations, Non Governmental Organisations, International Organisations
and partner countries agencies.
The objective of the meeting is twofold:
(1) to exchange information about the situation with regard to FLEGT Action
Plan implementation, particularly VPA developments and the EU Timber
(2) to share lessons from FLEGT related projects, and see how project
experience can feed into policy development and strategic thinking.
These three days provide a great opportunity to learn from these projects
their deliverables, their challenges in implementation and their
contributions to our policies. Coordination between EU staff and project
partners that takes place during those days improves daily work and
efficiency in policy implementation and project management, both at country
level and ant a global level.
