Supporting the Implementation of FLEGT Voluntary Partnership Agreement in Cameroon

LTS has been contacted by the European Forest Institute’s EU FLEGT Facility to provide Support to the Implementation of FLEGT VPA in Cameroon with the aim to build capacity of the Ministry of Forests and Wildlife (MINFOF) in the planning and monitoring the implementation of its Legality Assurance Systems (LAS). The Government of Cameroon and the European Commission concluded negotiations of the Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) in May 2010 and the agreement was ratified in June 2011. In 2012, the LTS team will assist the government to agree on responsibilities for different levels of LAS administration, support staff of the Department of Standards (SN) within the Ministry in project monitoring and tracking the implementation; assist the SN in the development of planning tools and monitoring the implementation of LAS; and support the MINFOF with engaging stakeholders in the implementation of the verification system of law in the context of the VPA. LTS will also review and facilitate the development of verification procedures and train LAS managers on the new VPA requirements.
