Members of Indonesian civil society travel to Brussels to urge European countries to create better laws for combating illegal timber entering the European Union (EU). A West Papuan tribal leader accompanies the delegation and presents a speech on behalf of his community, who have suffered directly from the impact of illegal logging. These meetings and the continued work of Indonesian civil society has meant that they have now been officially recognized as an integral part of the negotiations between the EU and the Indonesia government on illegal logging. Affiliated Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO): Since 1999, the Environmental Investigation Agency and Telapak have been providing training to a network of grassroots non-government organizations in Indonesia. This project has significantly enhanced the ability of local organizations and communities to ensure their voices are heard globally using video, photography and evidence gathering techniques. Their work has also involved taking these NGOs to lobby consumer countries importing illegal Indonesian timber.
