A new future for the Global Landscapes Forum, climate commitments at COP22, drylands, gender, and more…

A new report, co-authored by CIFOR scientists, indicates that one third of tropical timber traded globally comes from illegal deforestation. This significant number stems from the increasing amount of timber traded on domestic markets, which are less regulated than international, export-oriented markets.
