FLEGT Week 2015

What is FLEGT Week?

The Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Action Plan of the European Union was launched in 2003 to combat illegal timber and strengthen forest governance. FLEGT Week 2015 is a unique opportunity for the EC and its partners to reflect on the full scope of the Action Plan, including but not limited to VPAs and the EU Timber Regulation, learn from the achievements and challenges, and discuss technical aspects of FLEGT.

What is the objective of FLEGT Week?

The objective of FLEGT Week is to convene actors with an interest in FLEGT to discuss the implementation and future of the EU FLEGT Action Plan.

Who organises FLEGT Week?

FLEGT Week is organized by two directorates of the European Commission: Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development and Directorate-General for Environment. FLEGT Weeks have been organised regularly since 2005.
