About the programme
The EU-FAO Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade Programme (EU FAO FLEGT Programme) is a four year initiative funded by the European Union and implemented by FAO.
The EU FAO FLEGT Programme is a follow-on programme to the ACP-FLEGT Support Programme, began on May 1, 2012 and will end on April 30, 2016.
Our overall objective is to improve governance in the forest sector through improvement of policy, legal and regulatory frameworks; increasing capacity of civil society, private sector and forest sector staff to manage forest resource; enforcement of forestry legal frameworks; and knowledge sharing on the FLEGT process.
The EU FAO FLEGT Programme is a trust fund project funded by the European Union (10 million euro), the Department for International Development, UK (£ 1,408,833), and by FAO (1 million euro).
