Our forest campaign strategy uses a dual approach to expose forest crime and promote new policy measures to help eliminate illegally sourced timber and wood products from global markets. Our undercover investigations and trade data analysis have instigated major crackdowns on illegal logging and associated timber trading around the world, and brought the issue to the world's attention. EIA is dedicated to bolstering the anti-illegal logging policies of the U.S. and other consumer countries, and ensuring emerging global climate change strategies address the conduct driving forest loss and damage.
