Description

This Final Summary Report outlines project work conducted for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum Experts Group on Illegal Logging and Associated Trade (EGILAT) in line with the group’s two-year policy theme, “Advancing the Trade and Distribution of Legally Harvested Forest Products: Navigating to Legal Timber.” Project EGILAT 01 2022A sought to 1) outline the different approaches to promoting timber legality in APEC economies (including timber legality frameworks, measures and other requirements) and 2) consider future opportunities to enhance timber legality measures by exploring available and emerging data, tools, and technologies to help navigate to legal timber globally. The report covers project outputs including two stakeholder workshops, an updated compendium of resources to facilitate the trade in legal timber, and results of a "Stocktaking Survey" on timber legality frameworks across the APEC region.
