This project addresses key knowledge, technical and policy gaps related to forest and land governance, trade in informal and legal timber products, deforestation-related commodity-based agribusiness, woodfuel and ultimately sustainable forest and land-use management and improvement of livelihoods. CIFOR’s work in the project supports the FLEGT Action Plan (AP), as well other government- and industry-led processes in partner countries aimed at fostering good governance, decrease deforestation and improve livelihoods. CIFOR collaborates closely with FAO, European Forest Institute (EFI) and the Forest and Farm Facility (FFF) as strategic partners in the action.
The project consists of 4 components:
- FLEGT impact monitoring
- Territorial approaches and deforestation
- Food security and forests
- Woodfuel and charcoal
