With the financial and technical support from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the Centre for Rural Development in Central Vietnam (CRD) in collaboration with organizations of VNGO-FLEGT Network has developed and published the policy brief on “Gaps and potential risks in the implementation of regulations on labour contracts, employee insurance, and occupational safety in micro and small-sized timber enterprises in the context of VPA/FLEGT implementation”.
This policy brief sheds light on several issues in the actual implementation of regulations on labour contracts, workers’ insurance, and occupational safety in micro and small-sized timber enterprises. It also outlines several recommendations to help businesses overcome these obstacles so they can meet the requirements of the VPA/FLEGT and be eligible to participate in the legal timber supply chain.
The policy brief has been developed based on an overview of surveys conducted by the organisations of the VNGO-FLEGT Network as well as several other published reports and articles.
