First Update Meeting on Illegal Logging and Associated Trade

Event Overview

First Update Meeting on Illegal Logging and Associated Trade

March 08, 2007

Washington, DC, USA

The goal of this meeting is for participants to develop a better understanding of the issues, different perspectives and different initiatives currently being undertaken by governments, industry and NGOs. Our ultimate goal is to foster a constructive network of stakeholders interested in working on this issue. The main focus will be on issues that are pertinent to US-based organizations and markets. This can include international developments in both producer and manufacturing countries exporting to the US (e.g. Indonesia, China) or consumer countries importing US-produced wood products (e.g. China, Europe).
