CIDT was proud to take our 46 Improving Forest Governance (IFG) participants to the 25th Illegal Logging Update and Stakeholder Consultation Meeting at Chatham House on 25th June.
The meeting bought together a diverse group of cross-sector specialist speakers to address emerging issues central to discussions on the trade in illegal timber. The inclusion of the IFG cohort was able to boost representation from producer and processing countries at the event. The agenda (download PDF agenda) took as its topics the interactions between FLEGT and REDD+, the control of domestic timber markets, independent forest monitoring, and tackling the illegal rosewood trade.

All participants contributed actively through questions to the speakers and networking with other forest governance practitioners during the two-day event.
