Illegal Logging Update and Stakeholder Consultation

9 Jul 2007 - 00:00 to 10 Jul 2007 - 00:00

Chatham House, London

Energy, Environment and Resources Department, Forest Governance, Illegal Logging and Deforestation

Overview

Illegal logging and the international trade in illegally logged timber is a major problem for many timber-producing countries in the developing world. It causes environmental damage, costs governments billions of dollars in lost revenue, promotes corruption, undermines the rule of law and good governance and funds armed conflict.

This is the tenth in a series of meetings coordinated by Chatham House and funded by DFID.
