Ambiente Global presents the FLEGT initiative

15 January 2013 | News story

What is FLEGT? How do you combine sustainability and legality of forest management? Is effective forest governance possible? How do we fight illegal logging? Hear what the experts have to say.

Ambiente Global (Global Environment) will broadcast a special presentation about the European Union’s FLEGT initiative, which is being implemented in Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia by TRAFFIC South America, WWF Colombia and IUCN.

FLEGT promotes the application of laws, governance and trade. It works both in supply and demand for wood, under the premise of shared responsibility. FLEGT also links development with environmental protection and trade, with respect for national laws.
