    Law Compliance in the Forestry Sector
    An Overview
    -Arnoldo Contreras-Hermosilla
    Illegal acts are a major threat to global forest resources. Various studies on the magnitude and impact of forest crime completed in the last few years show rather shocking results: Illegal forest acts of various kinds are common everywhere, in developing and industrialized nations, and in all major forest types-boreal, temperate, and tropical. Forest crime prominently includes illegal logging but acts against the law also affect other sector operations such as forest products transport, industrial processing, and trade. This paper looks at available evidence on the magnitude and impacts of illegal acts, the vulnerabilities of the forest sector, and proposes a strategy for combating forest crime.
