Around 30 experts from 12 CITES Parties met in Dar es Salaam in March 2019 at the CITES Tree Species Programme Regional Meeting for Africa. The CITES Tree Species Programme (CTSP) aims to ensure the sustainable management of rare tree species and their products and to contribute to legal, traceable and fair trade in products from CITES-listed tree species. The Programme is also working to help strengthen forest governance, forest management policy, enforcement capacity and ensure long-term benefits for sustainable economic growth at country level through a healthy private sector and long-term poverty alleviation.

Participants learnt about the CITES Tree Species Programme and the work done in Africa with a focus on the trade routes and patterns in the region. Benin, Burundi, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Gabon, Kenya, Madagascar, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Togo, Uganda and the United Republic of Tanzania explained how they will be implementing their respective projects funded under the CTSP.
