Welcome to

the FLEGT-VPA library!

This space serves as a knowledge-sharing platform on the EU Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Action Plan, with a focus on the impact in Voluntary Partnership Agreements (VPA) partner countries.

A VPA is a legally binding trade agreement between the European Union and timber-producing countries. Its purpose is to ensure that all timber products imported into the EU come from legal sources, curbing illegal logging and improving governance of the forest sector.

Below you will find a collaborative desk review of existing academic literature and reports on the impact of VPA processes and implementation in Indonesia, Cameroon, and Ghana. To contribute, please register first and provide the requested information in this form. Submissions on all VPA partner countries are accepted.
