Transparency International's Forest Governance Integrity programme (FGI) tackles corruption as a primary driver of illegal logging and poor forest management. The programme looks at corruption at all stages in the timber production and processing chain and examines how it facilitates the unsustainable harvesting, production, conversion, export, import and procurement of timber and wood products. The activities of a regional FGI centre in Indonesia and local FGI units in China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands will contribute to curbing corruption and improving forest governance. This will be done by using TI's proven strengths and experiences in research, analysis, monitoring, awareness-raising and advocacy, and using them to build on, and strengthen, existing forest governance institutions and initiatives, and help create new ones.
