Highlighting Guyana’s progress under FLEGT

The EU FLEGT Facility recently published three stories to coincide with the EU and Guyana initialling their Voluntary Partnership Agreement on forest law enforcement, governance and trade. 

The first story recounts how the VPA process led to reforms that address longstanding inconsistencies in the legal framework that made it difficult for businesses to follow the law and for authorities to enforce it.
