Building on the tradition of the Forest Legality Alliance semi-annual partners’ meeting that the World Resources Institute (WRI) hosted in past years, the group recently announced that WRI will host the first “Washington Forest Legality Week” October 17-19, with the generous support and cooperation of the U.S. Forest Service.
The Washington Forest Legality Week is intended to enable dialogue and inspire action and partnerships to more effectively implement and monitor timber trade legality and due diligence measures. It is a multi-stakeholder, international event, drawing stakeholders from governments, the private sector, civil society, the scientific community, and service providers such as timber certification bodies. The meeting will take place over three days, and is designed to accommodate a range of side meetings and interactions convened by partner organizations.
