The aim of the project is to strengthening forest management practices of Chinese companies operating in Gabon. This happens through free and completely confidential pre-assessments, which provide the Chinese companies with a gap analysis in connection to legality and FSC certification.
The project focuses on ‘real life’ forest planning, management and land use operations in six EU member states: Sweden, Ireland, Poland, Spain, Austria and Hungary.
This project equips small and medium sized businesses in Vietnam with know-how to meet EU FLEGT requirements and market demands for legal timber.
On behalf of FSC, we are producing risk analyses feeding into FSC's centralised Controlled Wood National Risk Assessments for 53 key timber producer countries.
The cornerstones of this project are to raise the livelihoods of marginalised communities and, at the same time, contribute to the stabilisation of greenhouse gas emissions on a global scale.
