WRI hosted the first “Washington Forest Legality Week” October 17-19, with the generous support and cooperation of the U.S. Forest Service. Forest Legality Week was intended to enable dialogue and inspire action and partnerships to more effectively implement and monitor timber trade legality and due diligence measures. It was a multi-stakeholder, international event, drawing more than 185 stakeholders from governments, the private sector, civil society, the scientific community, and service providersx such as timber certification bodies. The meeting took place over three days and was designed to accommodate a range of side meetings and interactions convened by partner organizations.
The FLI team would like to thank all presenters, panelists, and attendees for joining us!
