Traceability is increasingly recognized as an important tool to address the role of human consumption in driving deforestation. Many governments that manage valuable forest resources have considered, or are already developing, traceability systems to better monitor legal compliance, facilitate exports to regulated markets, or enhance natural resources management.
The report Timber Traceability: A Diagnostic Tool for Practitioners and Policymakers seeks to provide practical guidance to decision-makers and timber traceability system designers so that they can better define their needs and design and implement traceability systems that respond to the specific needs and context of the country. The report builds on experiences documented in the 2022 FAO-WRI traceability case studies in Latin America.
This webinar will unpack some of the key findings of the report, and discuss some of the central issues facing developers of traceability systems.
