Ghana’s Forestry Commission has a Briefing Note of Ghana’s agreement with the EU, and other useful briefing and discussion papers. The environment page of the EU website gives up-to-date news of FLEGT activities around the world. The NGO FERN also has useful information and has produced an excellent practical guide on ‘Making Forestry Fairer‘, designed as an easy-to-read guide on how groups can use FLEGT VPAs to bring about sustained changes that ensure forest policies and management better account for the needs, aspirations and rights of people living in and around the forests.
The UN Food and Agriculture Organisation has a lot of information, technical modules and tools to support sustainable forest management and good forest governance, including on FLEGT VPA such as guidance for developing legality definitions on FLEGT VPAs and many others.
The South American FLEGT project ‘Supporting the implementation of the EU FLEGT Action Plan in South America: Catalyzing initiatives to control and verify the origin of timber in trade and support related improvements in forest governance’ has produced the website FLEGT.info. The project is being implemented in Peru, Colombia, Ecuador and Brazil and, besides the project, the website also incudes information about many other related forest issues in South America.
