Abstract

This paper builds on the use of national governance indicators to develop a new relative governance ranking. The relative governance ranking seeks to provide an entry point for buyers of timber products, particularly those in regulated markets such as the EU and USA, who wish to undertake a risk assessment process for forest products sourced from countries where credible reports on incidences of illegal logging are lacking.
