FLEGT: Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade - 2004

52 views

FLEGT stands for Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade, the European Union's response to the global problem of illegal logging and the trade in associated timber products.The FLEGT Action Plan proposes measures to increase the capacity of developing and emerging-market countries to control illegal logging, while reducing trade in illegal timber products between these countries and the EU. These measures include: support for improved governance and capacity building in timber-producing countries; development of Voluntary Partnership Agreements with timber-producing countries to prevent illegally produced timber from entering the EU market; efforts to reduce the EU's consumption of illegally harvested timber and discourage investments by EU institutions that may encourage illegal logging. On 17 and 18 June 2004, Poul Nielson, Member of the EC in charge of Development and Humanitarian aid, visited the National Amazonian Research Institute (INPA) in Manaus, and the Mamirauá Sustainable Reserve that lies in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, in order to see the conservation efforts being made in the Amazon rainforest.
