CRIMINAL ACTIVITY AND DEFORESTATION IN LATIN AMERICA

In December, the Foreign Commonwealth and development Office in the UK published this  review draws from the literature on the lessons learned in combatting criminal deforestation activity.  It examines evidence on criminal deforestation activity in Latin America (particularly, but not exclusively the Amazon, although the review focuses on Brazil) and draws from the literature on the lessons learned in combatting criminal deforestation activity.  It is noted that Illegal deforestation occurs largely through criminal networks as they have the capacity for coordination, processing, selling, and the deployment of armed men to protect operations. Bribery, corruption, and fraud are also said to be deeply ingrained in deforestation.
