About the group

Welcome to the Sustainable Forests for the Future group!

The European Union supports the efforts of partner countries to preserve their forests and to contribute to sustainable, inclusive economies and societies.

Through the Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) actions, the EU contributes to combatting illegal logging and strengthening forest governance while encouraging sustainable trade in legal timber. The keystone of this plan are Voluntary Partnership Agreements (VPA), which are legally binding trade agreements ratified by the EU and timber-producing countries.

The EU is also proposing to partner countries to work together towards Forest Partnerships (FP). These represent political long-term commitments aiming at a comprehensive, holistic and integrated approach to protect, restore and ensure the sustainable use of forests.

Here you can exchange experiences, good practices and information on sustainable forestry. We encourage each of you to contribute with your voice by posting documents, pictures, videos, promoting events and initiating discussions.
