EU Action Plan for Forest Law Enforcement Governance and Trade

Cameroon and the European Commission have agreed upon the text of a Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA). Negotiations are ongoing with the Central African Republic. Gabon’s Prime Minister recently requested the launch of formal VPA negotiations between his country and the EU. The launch and first negotiation session is scheduled to take place in Libreville in the week of March 15. For Liberia, 
The VPA Secretariat was officially put into operation in October 2009. Next formal negotiations will take place in early March in Brussels. Congo is currently implementing the VPA concluded in May 2009. One of the major efforts is to develop a national traceability system to capture the supply chains of timber products for domestic and all export markets. The system is being developed in a close cooperation with the government of Congo and EU Delegation in the country.
