The GTTN Working Groups meetings, which are organized back-to-back with the Forest Legality Week in Washington, D.C., will take place on 19-20 October 2017.
The Forest Legality Week already includes a more general introduction to GTTN, to inform a broader audience. GTTN Working Groups will then 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, working papers on Standardization, on Lab Finder and Reference Database, and on the Communication and Advocacy Strategy will be discussed. Furthermore, the network 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). The GTTN Secretariat is very much looking forward to meet, discuss and jointly make progress on GTTN activities.
