Tropical countries promoting sustainable forestry

BMRC roadmap cover

The Roadmap

The BMRC Roadmap is the outcome of broad stakeholder dialogue. It describes the Coalition’s structure, its aim to win demand-side market recognition of members’ Sustainable Forestry Systems and how this is to be achieved.

Path to the BMRC

The Tropical Timber Accord, endorsed at COP26 and the “Beyond FLEGT” session at the Indonesia Pavilion in COP27 agreed that a new initiative was needed to harness market demand for international forest products in support of tropical countries’ National Sustainable Forestry Systems. Subsequent dialogue concluded that such an initiative should ‘define a system of rules based legality and sustainability for tropical countries, supporting governance and strong global collaboration’.
