STTC Conference - Exploring Pathways to Verified Sustainable Tropical Timber
The European timber sector has focused on both ensuring its sources of supply are legal and on growing market share for verified sustainable tropical wood.
The Sustainable Tropical Timber Coalition (STTC) 2019 Conference looks at how these dual efforts can interrelate to increase verified sustainable timber supply and demand and how STTC tools can support the process.
The 2019 STTC Conference is centered around two themes:
- tropical timber promotion and tools that support the increase of verified sustainable tropical timber supply and demand
- how verified sustainable forest management can build on regional and national initiatives, such as the EU FLEGT VPA programme and Verified Sourcing Areas.
The Conference will gather STTC partners and participants, timber trade federations, timber traders, concession holders, policy makers, NGOs and other stakeholders. The conference will be moderated by popular long-term STTC conference facilitator Peter Woodward.
The STTC conference will be connected to the International Hardwood Conference that takes place on November 21 and 22 at the same venue in Berlin.
