FSC announces Partnership with the UN-REDD Lower Mekong Initiative
FSC is pleased to announce a partnership with the UN-REDD Lower Mekong Initiative. Focusing on the sustainable forest trade in the Lower Mekong Region (LMR), the partnership is a big step forward for sustainable timber products in Southeast Asia.
This UN-REDD Lower Mekong Initiative supports sustainable forestry in the region through improved governance. Covering Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam, and engaging China as an important partner, the initiative aims to reduce forest degradation and deforestation and promote sustainable forest management around the region.
This exciting partnership will see us fully commit to developing a Sustainable Tropical Timber Information Hub, bringing FSC certificate holders of all sizes together - from smallholders, and SMEs, to multi-national corporations along the construction, timber and furniture value chains.
Buyers, sellers and other interested parties including trading companies, government agencies, and industry players in Malaysia are also invited to join FSC’s Sustainable Tropical Timber Trade Network.
