Voluntary Partnership Agreements in the FLEGT Action Plan - UK Consultation

Overview

This event is part of a broader process of consultation exploring six themes from the Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Action Plan with UK stakeholders, which will inform the formal evaluation of the action plan at the EU level and the UK government position on FLEGT issues moving forward. 

Key questions to be addressed include the extent to which Voluntary Partnership Agreements (VPAs) have played a role in achieving the aims of the FLEGT Action Plan, what has been critical to their success, where they have been less impactful, and how the VPA model could evolve if VPAs are to continue to be negotiated with new countries.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
