Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and


Trade (FLEGT)


The Voluntary Partnership Agreement on FLEGT marked the start of the commitment between Vietnam and the European Union to work together on addressing illegal logging and trade. This is conducted through the establishment and operation of the Vietnamese Legality Timber Assurance System (VNTLAS).

As the Chair of VNGO-FLEGT Network since 2018 and a representative of CSOs in the UN-REDD Program Steering Committee in Vietnam, SRD has coordinated and implemented many activities to improve the capacity of CSOs to be able to actively participate in VPA/ FLEGT negotiation and implementation processes. Many activities have been implemented such as: Consultation with forest dependent communities; Developing an impact monitoring framework affecting forest planting households, timber processing enterprises and collecting initial information; Forest governance monitoring forums; Commenting on a number of legal documents and programs on forestry (Forestry Law, VNTLAS Decree, Circular on traceability of forest products, National Program on REDD+, etc.).

SRD, along with the VNGO - FLEGT network, has assured the continued support for small and micro sized timber processing enterprises to comply with VNTLAS regulations as well as to minimize the possibly negative effects of this agreement.

  • 40 staff from various CSOs trained on REDD+
  • 30 representatives of households who plant forests, exploit or process timber assessed the impacts of the VPA on timber production
  • 12 representatives of CSOs trained on Terra-i technology and joined a trail project on monitoring forest developments in real time
  • 10 technical workshops received SRD comments and input regarding forest protection and development law
