Brief on VPAs and poverty reduction is now available in French and Spanish
A driving feature of the EU FLEGT Action Plan and VPAs is the EU's strong commitment to poverty reduction. In this brief, the authors consider how VPAs might affect poverty and suggest ways to improve the positive outcomes of VPAs for poverty. They also examine how VPAs might be used to prevent or mitigate any negative effects of the agreements. This brief is based on a longer study on VPAs and poverty by the same authors.
The brief is now available in French and Spanish. The English version is available here.
