Chatham House Illegal Logging Consultation


We will be speaking at Chatham House in a session chaired by Rachel Butler from the European Timber Trade Federation between 1.30 and 3.30pm on Thursday 9 February.

The 19th Illegal Logging Stakeholder Update is a high profile event is hosted at Chatham House with funding from UK Department for International Development and additional support from the European Forest Institute’s EU FLEGT Facility.

We will be looking at how DNA has been commercially used for timber traceability since 2007 as well as new projects which are underway in 2012 extending the ability for downstream use of DNA for verification.

This event at Chatham House is an important date in the calendar for policy makers, NGO and industry concerned with issues of forest governance, particularly illegal logging and timber traceability. Find out more about the event, review the agenda or register here.
