The project "Support to the implementation of the FLEGT VPA in Viet Nam" (FLEGT) is commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development of Germany (BMZ) and jointly implemented by the Viet Nam Administration of Forestry (VNFOREST) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH.

The FLEGT project aims to support Vietnamese stakeholders, including law enforcement agencies and enterprises, in the implementation of the Voluntary Partnership Agreement on Forestry Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (VPA/FLEGT) between the EU and Viet Nam. The project’s overall objective is to achieve sustainable management of timber supplying forests and strengthen legal compliance and Rule of Law in Vietnam.

The project is expected to achieve its objectives by end of 2024 through the implementation of the three following outputs:

  • Output 1: The legal requirements and the organisational setting for FLEGT VPA implementation are improved
  • Output 2: Selected jointly as VPA conform agreed (EU/Viet Nam) elements of the VNTLAS are operational
  • Output 3: The impact monitoring is conducted according to the M&E framework and action plan.
