The Forest Independent Monitoring Network (JPIK) has the opportunity to present the experience of carrying out independent monitoring of the SVLK and the challenges ahead in the event initiated by Chatham House. The event which took place at the Chatham House Office was a series of two-day seminars with the title 21st Illegal Logging Stakeholder Update on 7 – 8 February 2013 which was located at 10 St James’ Square, London United Kingdom.

Zainuri Hasyim from JPIK presented his experience in monitoring the Timber Legality Verification System (SVLK) in front of more than 200 attending seminar participants. Crucial points in independent monitoring to be discussed in a question and answer session include data accessibility issues, monitoring funding, and monitoring methodology. Exchange of similar experiences with several other countries occurred in this discussion.

Chatham House – the home of the royal institute of international affairs – is an institution that conducts independent analysis activities, debates and delivers influential ideas about how to build a better world
