EnLiFT has been organizing EPPL (EnLiFT Policy and Practice Lab) for the past five years and has been successful in bringing together policy makers, researchers, local communities, CSOs, and the private sector to discuss on critical policy issues. In contrast to the conventional methods of policy discussion, EPPL adopts a unique way of diagnosing the policy problems and offering practical solutions brought through several rounds of discussion.
EnLiFT hosted an EPPL on timber harvesting and trade: Scope for District/local level initiation on 15 October 2020. A whole range of issues pertinent to timber trade was presented and discussed. Among others, issues related to capacity, financing, technology, and legal and regulatory provisions were discussed.
