Tackling the Trade in Illegal Precious Woods

23 April 2012 - 12:00am to 24 April 2012 - 12:00am

Chatham House, London



Illegal harvesting of precious woods is a global problem, in some cases threatening the sustainability of entire species and their ecosystems. However, a range of experiences in tackling the issue exists from which best practices can be identified, in order to help sustain the legal trade in precious woods.

The aim of this meeting is to bring together representatives of key producer and consumer countries, to discuss lessons learnt from efforts to tackle the illegal trade in wildlife products. Drawing on a range of case studies, potential leverage points in supply chains will be identified, and policy, regulation or other tools considered for placing the trade in precious woods on a sustainable footing.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
