Europe’s changing tropical timber trade 2004 to 2014

“Europe’s changing tropical timber trade”, a report by IMM published as part of the ITTO Technical Series in 2015, establishes the baseline for long term monitoring of market impacts of FLEGT licensing, describing the evolution of the market for timber from VPA partner countries in the EU between 2004 and 2013. The report quantifies VPA countries’ shares in relevant sections of the EU timber market including logs, sawnwood, decking, mouldings, veneer, plywood, joinery products, furniture, pulp and paper. It identifies and weights the wide range of factors impacting on the availability of tropical timber from VPA countries and the demand for these products in the EU. It establishes the position of the FLEGT licensing process within the wider context of social, economic and environmental developments influencing the international tropical timber trade.
