Corruption and forest revenues in Papua

Under a sustainable, well-managed, logging regime, Papua - the most densely forested part of Indonesia - can potentially contribute substantial forest revenues for socio-economic development. Yet, it remains the poorest region in the country, in part due to widespread corruption involving public and private actors. Specific changes to the forest revenue management system are required to address corruption. Donors can support these changes by engaging in capacity building for auditors, accountants and investigators, and through technical assistance for improving forest monitoring and production reports.
