Making the forest sector transparent. Annual Transparency Report 2010
Research for the Forest Sector Annual Transparency Report for 2010 was conducted in five countries – Cameroon, Ecuador, Ghana, Liberia and Peru –between July and December 2010 by independent national NGOs and local partners. The programme uses a red‐amber‐green traffic light system to indicate which forest sector documents are in the public domain, and draws lessons for improvements on a national level. Data from each country against a common set of 78 transparency indicators is now available on the programme website: www.foresttransparency.info. For four countries, comparisons can be made between 2009 and 2010.
