Promoting Trade of Sustainable and Legal Wood in China

Event Overview

Promoting Trade of Sustainable and Legal Wood in China

September 22, 2006

Beijing, China

The trade in unknown- or illegally-sourced wood products has become an internationally recognized problem over the past few years. Ministerial-level declarations such as the Bali Declaration and St. Petersburg Declaration have signaled both consumer and producer governments' commitment to combat illegal logging and associated trade. Major international institutions such as the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) and the World Bank have developed work programs to support governments and other institutions institute measures to combat this trade. Several Chinese institutions and researchers have been working on this issue. This meeting is to convene all those who are working on some aspect of the trade of unknown / illegally sourced wood products to share information about their work programs, share experience and findings, and to explore complements and avoid duplication in the future.
