Webinar series on " Timber for Industrialization and Regional Integration in AFRICA"
In line with the Action Plan on Boosting Intra-Africa Trade (BIAT) and the objectives of the African Continental Free Trade Area agreement (AfCFTA), the overall objective of this webinar is to discuss ways to capitalize on forestry resources to support industrialization and boost intra - African trade of wood products to create wealth and value addition in Africa. Specifically, it will:
1. shed light on the extent to which African countries conduct intra-African trade in wood products, the extent of downstream processing and trade as well as the magnitude of illicit trace in timber products
2. discuss challenges and opportunities for promoting Africa’s integration and industrialization through its timber sector building on three recent publications by the African Natural Resources Centre (ANRC) and its collaborating technical partners on (i) Intra-African Trade in Wood Products: Case studies
from Benin, Cameroon, Ghana and the Republic of Congo, (ii) Wood processing and trade of wood products in Africa, and (iii) Illicit trading in Africa’s forest products: Focus on timber.
The webinar is a part of the ANRC mandate and strategy to assist RMCs adopt sustainable and inclusive management practices of natural resources, through policy advisory and wider sector economic work.
