IFAS/FLEGT Stakeholder Meeting

A stakeholder meeting was held 10 May at the Forestry Division, where RDF presented the findings from their Technical Assessment. Particular focus was on a new process for administering the forestry concessions and licenses issued. The meeting was well attended, by MAFFS staff, Ministry of Trade, Timber Associations, National Revenue Authority, Police, National Security Office, FAO and EC.

Last week, RDF has installed the equipment and systems required for the division to operate the Forestry Concessions Administration System (FCAS). Most existing licenses have already been digitized, and the divsion will start using the system to issue new licenses.

The license data will be made available to stakeholder in the GoSL Online Repository over the coming months.
