1. Project Code and Sector

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
Duration: 36 months
Executing Agency: UNODC
Budget: US 2,300,700

 

2. Project Background and Justification

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.
