FAO-EU FLEGT Programme

FAO FLEGT supports the Cameroon Regional Forest Governance Forum


The FAO FLEGT programme supported the organization of the Cameroon Regional Forest Governance Forum. This event, held in Yaoundé from 16th to 18th March 2016, gathered more than 200 participants from government, civil society, private sector, forest-dependent communities, indigenous peoples, international organizations, the academic community, the media and donor organizations. Cameroon Regional FGF aimed at providing a free, deliberative and open space for the exchange of information, experiences, lessons, ideas and up to date research around Forest Governance, FLEGT-VPAs and other initiatives seeking to improve forest governance and combat illegal logging. This objective was met in full, as highlighted in this report.
