    The ten years following the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (Rio de Janeiro, 1992) have been years of intense activity in the reformation of national and international laws. Over the last decade, sustainable developmetn has become a universal watchword, and a major catalyst for the reorientation of legal texts. Profound legal changes have been triggered by the transformation of socialist economies and the accelerating globalization of trade and economy. At the same time , there has been a resurgent recognition of the critical role of the law in achieving development and environmental objectives and in supporting good governance. This publication reviews the important changes that have occurred over the last decade in food, agriculture and natural resources laws. It is a collaborative effort of the FAO Legal Office, reflecting its experience in providing advice to governments and intergovernmental bodies in the preparation of laws and treaties. International and national law are addressed together in chapters and organized around the major subjects within FAO's mandate.

    Agenda: How has supporting MSMES to operate legally and sustainably improved forest governance and livelihoods?
    Event hosted by the FAO-EU FLEGT Programme in collaboration with the European Forest Institute
    2021
    Also available in:

    Micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) play a critical role in meeting the growing demand for timber products worldwide and can support the fight against illegality by providing a source of legal, traceable timber. Equipping MSMEs with the relevant business management skills together with the knowledge and competences necessary to comply with regulations generates transformational changes which extend beyond the duration of projects. These changes not only improve legality in the timber market, but contribute to sustaining livelihoods. The webinar will explore how changes in forest-management practices generated through the support of the FAO-EU Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Programme and the European Forest Institute (EFI) have increased market access, enhanced the competitiveness of MSMEs, whilst reducing their vulnerability to shifts on the international and domestic market. It will discuss the experiences of MSMEs who have benefited from FAO and EFI support and provide "food for thought” for future interventions.
