A coherent and transparent policy framework that is effectively and consistently enforced is a prerequisite for tackling illegal logging and the trade in illegal timber. An assessment of the following aspects of government policy has been undertaken for processing countries, considering both its design and the level of implementation: high-level policy, legal framework, law enforcement, international engagement and public procurement policy. In addition, data on enforcement and revenue collection were compiled and a perceptions survey conducted among experts to gauge their views on the government’s response.
