This video is an adaptation of "The Story of FLEGT" produced by FERN for the context of Guyana.
FLEGT stands for Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade. The European Union's FLEGT Action Plan was established in 2003. It aims to reduce illegal logging by strengthening sustainable and legal forest management, improving governance and promoting trade in legally produced timber. The video focuses on the status of the Voluntary Partnership Agreements (VPA) process in Guyana.
The target audience is the Amerindian communities of Guyana and the video stresses the importance of their participation in the VPA process.
Financial support for this production was provided by the European Union.
