Updated Date : 04/09/2021 04:22

Under the sponsorship of the FAO EU FLEGT Program, the Standing Office for FLEGT and Lacey coordinated with stakeholders to develop three reports for three different groups of subjects within the scope of the VPA/FLEGT Agreement.

Report on Household was recorded in Dai Dong commune, Yen Binh district, Yen Bai province. The report showed the situation of afforestation of households and the level of compliance and enforcement of the law related to the VPA/FLEGT Agreement. In addition, the report also pointed out the difficulties faced by forest owners and proposed sustainable directions when participating in the Agreement.

Report on Timber Enterprises focused on interviewing businesses in the context of the difficult situation of the epidemic affecting production and business activities. However, compliance with commitments as well as current laws are adhered to enterprises.

For wood industry villages, when the VPA/FLEGT Agreement comes into effect, it is time for traditional trading and production activities to gradually shift to new and more sustainable ways. Despite many difficulties, the villages are showing positive signs when moving in the direction prescribed by VPA/FLEGT.

Three reports were broadcast on VTV2, details of the reports, please access the link below:
