Timber Procurement Guidance Note for Haiti

BY WWF EDM | 17 OCT 2016
Sourcing of timber for transitional and permanent shelters is a key environmental issue related to disaster recovery in Haiti.
The overall impacts of the demand for timber need to be considered to ensure the recovery efforts are truly beneficial to the long term well-being of the affected communities and do not increase vulnerability of other non-affected communities. Therefore, it is imperative that organizations show due diligence in their efforts to identify legal and responsibly managed timber sources.
