 Author: Richard Eba’a Atyi  Publisher: African Development Bank Group  Pages: 60  Language: English

This report was commissioned as part of efforts to initiate support – in particular, through the preparation of forest law enforcement and governance national strat- egies and the implementation of European Union voluntary partnership agreements on forest law enforcement, governance and trade – for timber-exporting African countries combating illegal timber harvesting and trade. It is also to guide future initiatives of the African Natural Resource Centre in this area. More specifically, the report documents systems and processes to test for compliance with European Union forest law enforcement, governance and trade voluntary partnership agreement regulation.
