To meet international market demand for legally sourced timber, Indonesia has introduced the Legality Verification Standard (SVLK).
SVLK adoption is having an immediate impact on the timber industry in Indonesia and it is not yet clear how this will affect smaller producers – much depends on enforcement and implementation.
This book examines the SVLK from the industy's perspective, providing analyisis of the readiness to implement at both central government and local government levels. It considers all the requirements to meet the certification, and the expectations of the national and international market.
The research considers sample provinces, presenting the private sector's perspective on SVLK implementation in East Java, Central Java, West Java, Banten, DIY Yogyakarta, and South Sulawesi.
