We believe improving forest governance, increasing transparency and strengthening the rights of local communities are key conditions of efforts to reduce deforestation.
LoggingOff is a space for civil society to share and exchange views and experiences of the FLEGT process and the importance of recognising communities’ land rights.
With up-to-date and from-the-ground information, LoggingOff builds connections between civil society in timber producing countries, and national and EU policy makers.

Loggingoff.info is co-managed by a group of NGOs from European and timber-producing countries.
We are interested to hear from civil society groups in potential VPA partner countries, and other timber-producing countries, who might wish to contribute to, or become co-managers of the site.
In order to keep track of the flow of information, there is one co-manager per country. They exclude offensive material and maintain accountability for everything which is uploaded to the site.
Co-managers receive access rights. They can edit and upload material relevant to their specific country or area of work.
