Technical support to EU FLEGT initiative
With EC, EFI and Partner Countries | 2005 — ongoing
Proforest has been at the forefront of developing FLEGT policies and assessing VPA components. We have developed guidance, provided technical support and training for the EU, partner country governments, NGOs and timber producers in around 15 countries throughout Europe, Africa and Asia.
We have also carried out numerous evaluations and studies including a scoping study looking into options for a VPA agreement with Vietnam, an independent review of the proposed legality assurance scheme of Cameroon, and the development of a Legality Verification System in Guyana.
