SalvaTerra evaluates support for FLEGT VPA implementation in Congo

The European FLEGT programme aims to guarantee the legality of European timber imports, excluding in particular any import of illegal timber. The Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) between the EU and the Republic of Congo, which entered into force in 2013, aims to establish a Legality Verification System (LVS) covering the entire timber value chain, including for the domestic market.

From November 2015 to May 2019, AFD executed for €5.35 million a “Project to support the implementation of the FLEGT VPA in the Republic of Congo” focusing on the revision of the Congolese legal corpus, the structuring of civil society, the strengthening of forest administration and support for private sector compliance.

In 2019, SalvaTerra was entrusted with the final evaluation of this project. The conclusions indicate in particular that very significant progress has been made in finalizing the LVS, but also that there is still significant work to be done to operationalize control at the level of the forest administration.
