Lawyers and associates from ClientEarth have been training members of civil society in Ivory Coast on the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR), the EU’s law to address the issue of illegal logging. This training made headlines on Ivorian TV.
ClientEarth has looked at the key provisions of the Forest Code (2014) in Ivory Coast to clarify the terms of the law and to make it more easily understandable.
ClientEarth has been providing legal advice to civil society in Ivory Coast since June 2016, to support their participation in the Forest Code reform.
The environmental impacts of forest conversion are devastating, but the people and communities who live in the forest are also at risk.
The world’s tropical forests are being cleared for agriculture and mining. This is known as ‘forest conversion’ and it’s the leading cause of deforestation today.
