IMM Trade Consultation in Berlin organised with support of GD Holz
The third IMM Trade Consultation will take place on 16 November 2018, from 10 am to 2:30 pm, at Verbändehaus in Berlin. The event is organised with the support of the German timber trade federation GD Holz.
In response to trade feedback from the first two events in London and Nantes, the Berlin Consultation will place an even stronger focus on workshops, allowing participants to attend all three sessions.
The workshops in Berlin will deal with:
- Trends in the European tropical timber sector – background, reasons and solutions
- Recognising priorities and purchase dynamics for tropical wood products. Assessing how supply chain relationships develop and the relevance or impact of FLEGT licences.
- FLEGT & “sustainability” – European timber procurement policies/sustainable timber definitions and their recognition of FLEGT
As a part of the first workshop, IMM will present a statistical analysis of recent trends in European and global tropical timber trade and put up for discussion. The second workshop will feature a short presentation of an IMM study of EU wood promotion programmes and NGO lobbying materials and their respective recognition of FLEGT. The third workshop will kick off with a short presentation of results of an IMM study of European private sector procurement policies and sustainable timber definitions. It will also feature a short presentation of the Indonesian sustainable forest management standard PHPL and its role in the Indonesian VPA.
