FSC’s Board of Directors meeting in Brazzaville in November



The FSC’s 73rd Board of Directors meeting was held in Brazzaville in November 2016. Some board members were able to visit the IFO-Danzer and CIB-OLAM forest concessions, between 10 and 13 November.

On Saturday, 19 November, an informative day marked by exchanges and dialogue between FSC board members and stakeholders, including a delegation of ATIBT members including representatives from the Rougier (Gabon, Cameroon) and CIB-OLAM companies, FRM, CIRAD, accompanied by Françoise Van de Ven (UFIGA-Gabon) and Benoit Jobbé-Duval, Director of ATIBT.

This « stakeholder day » was an opportunity for all of the different interest groups working towards the responsible management of Congo Basin forests (governments, civil society organisations, forestry companies, non-governmental organisations, FSC members, resource persons) to learn about the processes conducted by FSC and to exchange views with board members on topics that are particularly important for the Sub-Region, including the important IFL issue, on which certified ATIBT members spoke at length.
