Description

This document aims to summarize best practices identified by the Workshop to Share Experience, Knowledge and Challenges on Implementation of Tools for Combating and Preventing Illegal Logging Activities and Associated Trade. The workshop was held on 23 and 24 February 2019 alongside the 15th APEC Expert Group on Illegal Logging and Associated Trade (EGILAT) meeting in Santiago, Chile.

It is intended to provide an overview of forest monitoring and supply chain traceability tools developed and used by APEC member economies and multilateral organizations to prevent and combat illegal logging and its associated trade (ILAT). Where possible, it seeks to also outline some of the practical considerations in applying such tools.
