About this book

Compiled by WWF and the World Resource Institute (WRI), with funding from the European Commission, the report documents the role played by multinational logging companies in the Africa-Caribbean-Pacific (ACP) countries. It shows how investment, formerly led by companies from Japan, Europe and North America, has shifted to Asian firms, mainly from Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea and Hong Kong (China). According to the study, this new trend has resulted in an expansion of destructive logging operations, violation of indigenous rights, and sometimes large-scale corruption.
