The project activities can be summarized in the following:

  • FLEGT briefings in Spanish and Portuguese
  • Briefing events on FLEGT
  • National scoping and forest governance indicator studies
  • Benchmarking study on forest governance
  • National training modules (including distance and e-learning tools) on FLEGT compliance
  • Evaluation of FLEGT opportunities for public and private sector actors
  • Expert meetings and consultations on interrelationship of FLEGT and other major initiatives
  • Analysis complementarity of project country initiatives with FLEGT requirements
  • Liaison with key EU importing companies and relevant EU authorities and trade associations
  • Regional conference on FLEGT

Details on the implementation of these activities and final outputs are presented in this website.

It is expected that the outputs, tools and processes used in the project will also provide a potential roadmap for undertaking similar consultations in other South American countries, and in other regions.  With this in mind, project documentation charting the progress of the project will be produced in a format that can be used by others intending to pursue a similar approach in future.  An analysis of the most valuable experiences and findings of the project will be published at the end of the project.
