The Interactive Forest Atlas of Cameroon is a living forest information system hosted in the Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife (MINFOF) and supported by a joint team including members from MINFOF and the World Resources Institute (WRI).
This is the second post in a two-part series on illegal logging in Latin America, with key insights coming from the Forest Legality Alliance’s recent event, “Legal Forest Products and International Trade: A Regional Perspective.” The first installment focuses on the causes of illegal logging in Latin America, while the second highlights potential solutions to this problem.

The Interactive Forestry Atlas of Cameroon (Version 1.0) is one of the principal products of the ongoing Cameroon Ministry of Environment and Forest (MINEF) - Global Forest Watch (GFW) collaboration.
In the absence of detailed information on forest condition, Global Forest Watch is identifying large tracts of forest unfragmented by roads to provide a coarse-scale picture of where areas that are relatively undisturbed by commercial-scale activities remain in the world's forest.
Many people think of the Russian tiaga as an unlimited expanse of undisturbed nature. The main purpose of this study was to find out to which extent this notion is true -- to answer such questions as:
Forest sector planning and management policies can help ensure long-term yields of timber products while minimizing the environmental and social costs of logging and other development.

Cameroon contains some of the Congo Basin's most biologically diverse and most threatened forests.
Central Africa's forests have a long history of human use. Large-scale commercial logging, however, is a recent phenomenon.
This report addresses the following questions:
In light of the important issues that trade and forests entail, this report analyzes the risks and opportunities associated with proposed liberalization of international commerce in forest products.
Burma holds more than half of mainland Southeast Asia's closed forest, and is often called "the last frontier of biodiversity in Asia." Having lost virtually all of their original forest cover, Burma's neighbors -- China, India, and Thailand -- rely increasingly on Burma as a source of timber.
