Forest Watchdog reiterates calls for the Solomon Islands Government to help stop illegal logging practices and occurrences in the country
The Solomon Forest Association (SFA) has issued a notice today, Thursday, 15th November 2018, calling on the Solomon Islands Government to help stop illegal logging activities occurring in the country.
The notice follows a recent similar kind of appeal lodged by civil society organizations in Papua New Guinea (PNG) calling on China to introduce regulations on illegal wood imports from PNG.
The SFA spokesperson reiterated many previous statements made saying if any of its members were “acting out of hand and found to be breaking the law,” then the Association would wish to de-register the offending member but it could not do this alone and once more called on the Solomon Islands Government to ensure a proper measure of control over logging operations is introduced.
