New Website: Forest Law Enforcement

FAO provides support to countries to strengthen their forest policy framework and build institutional capacity in order to foster better forest law compliance. As part of this initiative, FAO restructured its Web site on Forest Law Enforcement, where information on FAO activities at the international and national levels is outlined. Also on the Web site, available in English, French and Spanish, are a list of FAO publications on the subject and links to other related institutions.
