What is FLEGT Week?


The Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Action Plan of the European Union was launched in 2003 to combat illegal timber and strengthen forest governance. FLEGT Week 2015 is a unique opportunity for the EC and its partners to reflect on the full scope of the Action Plan, including but not limited to VPAs and the EU Timber Regulation, learn from the achievements and challenges, and discuss technical aspects of FLEGT.
