Abstract

There is little evidence of certification's impact on checking illegal logging, corruption and other severe forest governance problems. This is not surprising since these problems derive from problems in the legal, regulatory and policy framework, and public respect for law and order - problems unlikely to be much affected by a market instrument (with a small market) like certification.
