Event's Image


Oct 24–25, 2010

The Regional Environmental Center (REC) will host a conference in November focusing on environmental crime, and on illegal logging in particular, in South Eastern Europe (SEE) and Ukraine.

The conference will provide a forum for presenting and discussing the findings of the SEE regional report on illegal logging prepared by the REC, as well as the individual country studies and diagnostic audits prepared under the Environment and Security Initiative (ENVSEC).

One of the main expected outcomes is the creation of a platform for cooperation between SEE countries. This platform would support efforts to promote and implement the recommendations presented in the SEE report on illegal logging from the starting point of regional cooperation, thus creating momentum for common and more efficient action.
