Jun 05, 2013

Jointly with the FOREST EUROPE Liaison Unit Madrid and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), CEPF organized a stakeholder meeting on the implementation of the Legally Binding Agreement (LBA) on Forests in Europe. The meeting took place in Brussels on 23 May 2013.

The meeting was attended by 30 people, representing various stakeholders, and it addressed the importance of stakeholder involvement, not only in the currently on-going LBA negotiation process, but in particular later implementation. The primary objective of the meeting was to open the doors and provide stakeholders with the opportunity to express their opinion and discuss the opportunities and challenges of the LBA, prior to the final meeting of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC) in Warsaw, Poland (10-14 June 2013).
