"China is the largest nation that imports timber and fiber from forests all over the world, very often with serious environmental and social issues. RAFT has been a program for NGOs to engage government, business, and civil societies in China for more responsible timber trade, which need continuous efforts for a long period of time from influential stakeholders.
