Summary of the recent illegal logging meeting at Chatham House available

The 21st Illegal Logging Stakeholder Consultation and Update Meeting was held at Chatham House on 7 and 8 February 2013, bringing together around 250 representatives from government, civil society and the private sector.

Ten years after the launch of the European Unions' Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Action Plan, this meeting sought to reflect on the progress made in negotiating and developing the FLEGT Voluntary Partnership Agreements, and to consider the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in light of the entry into force on 3 March 2013 of the EU Timber Regulation. 

summary report of this meeting is available on Chatham House's Illegal Logging website, together with the PowerPoint slides from the presentations given during the two-day meeting.
