Logo on wood to track illegal products from Cameroon

Cameron will introduce a logotype label affixed on wood products destined for the European Markets from the country.
“It will consist in putting on each wood that leaves Cameroon a kind of a stamp, FLEGET-Cameroun,” according to Samuel EbiaNdongo, project coordinator. The stamp is aimed to, according to authorities, ensure a sustainable management of the country’s forest and the effective eradication of illegal logging in the country.
This action shows compliance with the legislation of the bilateral agreements voluntary scheme signed between Cameroon and the EU to ensure that only legally harvested timber is imported into the EU. This agreement, called also VAP is a key part of the Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade Support Program for African, Caribbean and Pacific countries (ACP-FLEGT Support Program).
The European Union has other six VPAs with Indonesia, Central Africa Republic, Cameroon, the Republic of Congo,  Ghana, and Liberia. These agreements include commitments to halt trade in illegal timber, notably with a license scheme to verify the legality of timber exported to the EU, and
ACP-FLEGT Support Program is a collaborative effort among the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the European Commission and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) to address forest law enforcement, governance and trade issues in ACP member countries.
