Conference on Illegal Logging and Environmental Crimes

Budapest, November 24-25, 2010

The Regional Environmental Center (REC) will host a conference in November focusing on environmental crime, and on illegal logging in particular, in South Eastern Europe (SEE) and Ukraine.

The conference will provide a forum for presenting and discussing the findings of the SEE regional report on illegal logging prepared by the REC, as well as the individual country studies and diagnostic audits prepared under the Environment and Security Initiative (ENVSEC).

The conference will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss both the Forest Law Enforcement and Governance (FLEG) and Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) initiatives with representatives of the promoting institutions (the World Bank and European Union respectively). They will also be informed about INTERPOL’s experiences in combating illegal logging. Sessions focusing on environmental crime are also planned in order to provide a framework for the issue of illegal logging within the global context of environmental transgressions and non-compliance.  

One of the main expected outcomes is the creation of a platform for cooperation between SEE countries. This platform would support efforts to promote and implement the recommendations presented in the SEE report on illegal logging from the starting point of regional cooperation, thus creating momentum for common and more efficient action.
