Briefing for the Regional Dialogue on Siamese Rosewood and Illegal Logging

A briefing prepared by EIA for the meeting in Bangkok, Thailand, December 2014.

The Regional Dialogue is an invaluable opportunity for range, transit and consumer states to establish cooperative actions and policies capable of protecting rosewoods from commercial and biological extinction in the wild.

Due to ongoing demand, Siamese rosewood forests continue to be blighted by illegal logging and the region by illegal trade.
