New Go-REDD+ Issue Explores Anti-Corruption Efforts in Forest Sector

The latest issue from the UN-REDD Programme Asia-Pacific listserv looks at where anti-corruption efforts should focus in the forest sector in order to achieve the most effective results.


The Go-REDD+ issue entitled, "Where should Anti-Corruption efforts focus in the forest sector?" discusses different anti-corruption strategies in the forest sector. The article states that while governance and anti-corruption challenges in REDD+ will not be the same as those related to illegal logging, useful lessons can be drawn. The article explores the possible answers to several key questions on the issue, including: Are preventive or corrective actions most needed? What is the role of law enforcement and how to address the shortcomings of the criminal justice system in the forest sector? Is it more effective to tackle small operations or large scale activities?
