    • Forests Matter
      Over 400 million people depend
      on forests for income, food, energy,
      medicines and shelter.
      Global trade in primary wood products is about US$ 186 billion/yr and the total trade in all wood products is several multiple higher.
      20% of global carbon emissions come from deforestation and degradation
    • Costs of poor forest governance
      Livelihood losses to forest dependent communities
      Local and global environmental losses – (climate change and biodiversity)
      Fiscal losses to state
      Spread of crime and corruption (corruption contagion)
      Undermining institutions
      Undermining legitimate forest enterprises
    • Corruption and Illegal Logging
      Corruption in the forest sector is globally pervasive
      Has many forms:
      Criminal: illegal logging, smuggling, extortion
      Legal but corrupt: state capture, institutional erosion, rent seizing
      Scale is vast – but quantitative estimates remain elusive:
      Illegal logging (roundwood)on public lands estimated at >10bn per annum
      Illegal roundwood trade estimated at >1.2bn per annum
    • Ways to Improve Governance
      Increase economic efficiency: reduce monopolies
      Reduce administrative discretion
      Increase accountability
      Increase transparency
      Involve stakeholders
      Improve compliance

      enhancing awareness raising

      endorsing indicative list of action as the framework for implementation

      Collaborative implementation of actions
    • Observations
      process reflects the situation in the region
      joint commitment between the governments, private sector and civil society
      includes issues raised by NGOs and private sector
      strong civil society and private sector participation
      sensitive topics, like corruption, transparency, participatory approach, certification
    • Observations
