The legal trade of tropical wood must not lead to increased deforestation

The Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe welcomes Wednesday's vote in the Strasbourg plenary session of the European Parliament. The vote adopted a resolution urging the European Commission to better supervise the implementation of the Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) concluded with the major tropical-wood exporting countries of Cameroon and Congo and the governance and the commercial trade of wood and other wood derivatives (FLEGT). The expected development of this type of agreement poses a number of questions concerning environmental issues, and good governance.
