Summary

The FLEGT process is about the EU action plan on Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade. This study focuses on the Governance aspects of FLEGT and was commissioned by the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature ad Food Quality of The Netherlands. There is a need to gain more insight into the definitions of 'governance' which apply to the forest sector. To this end, it is useful to analyse and catalogue the most important and widely used definitions in order to help create a common understanding among national and international stakeholders.
