FAO-ITTO regional workshops on forest law enforcement

Regional workshops organized jointly by FAO and the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) took place in five key regions affected by illegal logging: the Amazon region, Central America, Central Africa, Southeast Asia and West Africa. The main purpose of the workshops was to provide an opportunity for countries to jointly identify the causes and impacts of illegal forestry activities in their regions; to share experiences on best practices to improve forest law compliance; and to establish or strengthen regional networks on forest law enforcement. Participants included representatives of forest administrations, members of non-governmental organizations active in combating illegal forestry activities in the regions and representatives from the forest industry and/or wood products exporters.
