China is a major consumer of tropical timber, and many suppliers are located in the Lower Mekong, particularly Vietnam. Ahead of us lie incredible opportunities to link the growing demand for sustainable timber products with responsible, certified suppliers. The FSC and UN-REDD Lower Mekong Initiative aim to bridge the gap through education and networking.

The second webinar "FSC x UN-REDD presents: Accelerating Sustainable Forest Trade and Investment in China and Vietnam" will consist of presentations and a live discussion with leading experts from both public and private sectors. Participants will be welcome to submit questions for a live question-and-answer session with the expert panel.
