On 3 June, an article from CMI, an independent development research institute in Norway, says that thorough undercover investigations have helped to uncover corrupt schemes to import illegal timber from the Congo, Cameroon and Nigeria to China and Vietnam. It says that corruption needs to be tackled at every stage of the supply chain – from country of origin to destination. It asks what role can investigations play?  It introduces the latest podcast which discusses how investigations can help shine a light on corruption in the forest sector, catalyse enforcement and illustrate concrete actions to tackle corrupt practices.
