Making the Forest Sector Transparent information notes

Making the Forest Sector Transparent worked with civil society groups in forest-rich countries between 2009 and 2012 to engage with policymakers and advocate for capable, responsive and accountable forest sector governance. The programme supported local environmental and human rights campaigners in seven countries to monitor transparency and to advocate on issues of importance to local communities. To achieve this, Global Witness formed partnerships with local NGOs in Peru, Ecuador, Ghana, Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Guatemala and Liberia.
