Since 2011, we have been engaged in a number of initiatives intended to promote uptake of forest certification in Africa, with a particular focus on Central Africa.
As the need for sustainable management of Southeast Asia’s forests increases, we are working with a wide range of partners to help increase the uptake of forest certification in the region.
Under the theme Designing the Future with Sustainable Timber, we are bringing together a range of stakeholders to promote the use of wood in construction in general and certified wood in particular.
In partnership with the UNECE and FAO, our Forests for Fashion initiative is linking forest-based materials from sustainably managed forests with the world of fashion.
Building on the work we have undertaken with our partners over recent years, we are supporting a regional project that will make certification more accessible to the region’s smallholders.
