“How you can make the European Timber Regulation work?”, September 19th 2013

There is now a law in the European Union to stop illegal timber from entering the European market. More info:http://www.clientearth.org/climate-an…
This law, the EU Timber Regulation, could have significant positive impacts on the environment, for forest communities and on corruption.
We can all play a part in making it work. This video explains how witnesses and observers of illegal logging can have a role to play.
ClientEarth works with the third sector, with timber industry and with institutional bodies to ensure the EUTR achieves its aims.

“Forests, the heart of a green economy”, June 17 2013

Forests provide livelihoods for up to 1 billion people and contribute trillions of USD to the global economy through products and services. Yet in some regions, deforestation continues at an alarming rate. As REDD+ aims to address market, policy, and institutional failures that undervalue the climate change mitigation service provided by the forest ecosystem, while protecting the rights of those who rely on the forests, there are clear links between REDD+ objectives and green economy objectives, both of which call for a change in the business-as-usual economic development in order to slow the loss of natural capital. This short film feature examples from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Indonesia and Ecuador, highlighting the potential challenges and opportunities of including REDD+ in the transition to a green economy.

“Using tropical forests sustainably”, March 13th 2013

The protection of tropical forests and the people who depend upon is the subject of a new video developed by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).Entitled Using tropical forests sustainably: simply explained, the video outlines the global importance of tropical forests for biodiversity, water cycles and products such as timber.It explains how non-governmental organizations together with social and indigenous groups have developed standards for the protection and management of tropical forests. When these are met, certification is given.Running for just five minutes, the animated video urges consumers to only buy timber products that carry labels of approved certification. This provides incentive for sustainable forest management and helps ensure such management is more profitable in the long-term than forest destruction or conversion to other uses.
