What we do
We work towards strengthening civil society’s capacity to identify corruption prone areas in the forestry sector and to target their advocacy and interventions to these risky areas. It is to be achieved through Forest Anti-corruption Advocacy, Forest Governance Systems Analysis and Monitoring (FAAA) component of the FGI -FAAA project formulated to combat corruption that drives illegal logging. This includes capacity building programmes, corruption risk maps and monitoring tools for forestry and timber trade, formation of influential networks and access to government agencies. These are then advocated at local and regional levels to reach a wider audience in enhancing their relevance to monitor anti corruption tools in the forestry sector. These tools would then be adapted to encompass Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) operations, activities and programmes.
- Evaluate the status for forest conservation in Malaysia and working for governance reforms within forestry management.
- Build capacity for civil society, including non-governmental organizations, local communities and indigenous people with the aim of strengthening their capacity to identify corruption threatened areas in the forestry sector.
- Map and evaluate existing forest conservation programs and REDD+ related activities in Malaysia.
- Develop a regional ‘Forestry Integrity Barometer’ in co-operation with TI- chapters in other Asia Pacific countries.
