Policy and Governance Short Course in Da Lat, Vietnam
EFI's EU FLEGT Asia team was invited to present a paper during a Policy and Governance Short Course held 24-26 November 2011 in Da Lat, Vietnam.
The course, exploring linkages between forestry and climate change, was co-organised by a number of organisations including RECOFTC, the ASEAN Social Forestry Network, UN-REDD and USAID. The FLEGT Asia team made a presentation which covered timber market drivers, entitled Legality: the EU's Forest Law Enforcement, Governance & Trade Action Plan and the EU Timber Regulation. This was followed by a lively and open discussion on illegal timber flows in the region.
