Since 2009, Making the Forest Sector Transparent has documented how well governments have met their commitments to improve forest sector governance and transparency. Forests are under severe threat from logging, mining and other industries, yet poor management and corruption facilitate their destruction and mean that the rights of those who live in them are often ignored. This summary presents findings from our efforts to monitor and help improve forest management systems in seven forest-rich countries. It is accompanied by country-specific report cards.
