Launch Congo Basin Program12-07-2011
With a tour through the Congo Basin from 18 June until 4 July 2011, the CBP has officially been launched in the region. In each of the 4 focus countries launch meetings were held with presence of representatives from the timber industry, NGOs, government officials, FSC and PEFC representatives. Also, individual meetings took place with parties interested in entering a partnership with the CBP. The interest for the program was great and the parties willing to join the program exceed by far the objective of 2.5 million ha.
