Data Source: EFI EUROFOREST Portal
METADATA
TitleFailing the forests - Europe's illegal timber trade
CreatorWWF
DescriptionIllegal timber and its global trade are now widely recognised as key threats to forest survival throughout the world. Not least among the players is the European Union (EU), which is now a major importer of such timber. Based on trade data for six key timber-producing regions – the Amazon Basin, the Baltic States, the Congo Basin, east Africa, Indonesia and Russia – this report explores how the EU is driving the illegal timber trade worldwide, and assesses the potential to limit illegal logging over the next 10 years.
