What is FLEGT?

FLEGT stands for Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade. The EU FLEGT Facility works to improve forest governance and promote legal trade in timber to ensure the forest sector is a positive force for development. These actions are at the core of the EU’s FLEGT Action Plan, which aims to halt illegal logging and promotes forest governance reform. The Facility works closely with the EU in implementing the FLEGT Action Plan.
