The Global Timber Tracking Network kindly invites to join the GTTN Working Groups meetings on 19-20 October 2017, which are organized back-to-back with the Forest Legality Week in Washington, D.C..
GTTN Working Groups will address key issues related to the successful development of timber tracking tools and policies and promote their use to reduce illegal logging and associated trade worldwide. In face-to-face meetings, we will discuss the working papers on Standardization, on Lab Finder and Reference Database, and on the Communication and Advocacy Strategy. Furthermore, we will address practical questions and develop milestones for the future organization of the Working Groups.
The GTTN workshops are organized in collaboration with and kindly hosted by the World Resources Institute (WRI).
