March 2019 Message from Lead Consultant
The IMM project has published some initial insights into its 2018 survey work in Europe. Four articles under “Project News” look into FLEGT-licensing and EUTR impact on tropical timber imports, 2018 EU trade experience with FLEGT-licenses, drivers behind the long-term decline of the EU tropical timber market, and EU Trade perceptions of VPA partner countries. IMM has recently published a new study on EU private sector timber procurement policies. Another recently published article on the IMM website features a project by the Global Timber Forum supporting association capacity-building in Ghana.
The private sector timber procurement study and a second study on EU Member State public timber procurement will be discussed during the IMM Trade Consultation in Antwerp on 12 April. Don’t forget to register.
