Logging, Mining, And Agricultural Concessions Data Transparency: A Survey Of 14 Forested Countries

Improving transparency of concessions data—the who, what, when and where of commercial activities that drive over 60% of global deforestation—is critical to preventing forest loss. Yet countries with over half of the world’s forests lack comprehensive, accessible information on concessions, greatly limiting our ability to monitor deforestation and enforce relevant laws. This infographic shows key findings from a new WRI studyon land concessions data transparency in 14 forested countries and provides recommendations that nations can adopt to improve access to concessions data.
