Forest certification in the Congo Basin, focus on PAFC Congo Basin
Join us on 18 June for a webinar on sustainable forest management certification in the Congo Basin and the new regional forest certification system PAFC Congo Basin.
The PEFC Congo Basin system is the first regional system to be developed and submitted to PEFC for endorsement. It is currently under assessment, with a decision expected later this year.
The webinar will highlight the use of forest certification as an effective traceability tool within the Congo Basin region, followed by a discussion on the benefits of such an initiative. It will also address the current market recognition of PAFC/PEFC certified timber and conclude with the critical question: what are the steps to get certified?
If you would like to find out more about certification in a tropical region, with a particular focus on the Congo Basin, this webinar will certainly be of interest to you. It is free to attend.
Organized with our international stakeholder member ATIBT (International Tropical Timber Technical Association), the webinar takes place virtually on 18 June, at 10:00 CEST using Zoom. It will be held in French.
The webinar will feature Markus Pfannkuch, technical consultant for Precious Woods, Caroline Duhesme, deputy coordinator of the FLEGT-REDD projects and secretary of the Certification Commission for ATIBT, and Germain Yene Yene, coordinator of the PAFC Congo Basin project.
The three speakers will share their perspective on each topic, offering a general vision of certification in the Congo Basin.
