Countering Illegal Logging and the linkage between Forest Crime and Corruption in Indonesia
|No. and Title:||Countering Illegal Logging and the linkage between Forest Crime and Corruption in Indonesia|
|Status/Starting Date:||First quarter 2010|
|Field:||Illicit Trafficking, Governance|
The project seeks to counter illegal logging and the illicit trade in forest products in Indonesia by strengthening the country's law enforcement and anti corruption capacities. More specifically the project seeks to strengthen the Special Responsive Police Forest Task Force (SPORC), improve the capacity of prosecutors and judges, and support civil society's response to illegal logging and corruption.
The project also seeks to counter the enabling environment that corruption provides to illegal logging in Indonesia by strengthening the capacity of Indonesia's anti-corruption agencies and law officials to investigate, prosecute and adjudicate corruption cases linked to forest crimes. Use of the anti money laundering regime to target the kingpins behind forest crimes will be a key output.
The core elements of this project focus on building the capacities of law enforcement agencies and judicial officers through the provision of specialised training, the establishment of performance standards and the development of coordination networks. Civil society is also engaged to lend valuable local support to law enforcement efforts.
The project seeks to address these gaps by strengthening the capacity of key agencies in Indonesia's criminal justice system to investigate and prosecute corruption cases related to forest crimes.
