Understanding how corruption is accelerating illegal logging and deforestation during the COVID-19 pandemic

September 29, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

The Sentry’s Senior Investigator Debra LaPrevotte will be the moderator for this virtual panel offered by the George Mason University TRACC. While the global community is focused on health issues tied to COVID-19, the world’s forests are being illegally logged at ever more significant levels. Join Targeting Natural Resource Corruption (TNRC) for a virtual panel that focuses on corruption as an important facilitator of illegal logging in Peru, Brazil and Mozambique. Experts will address COVID-19 era developments in a historical context, discuss their recent research and publications and advocate means to effectively address this crucial problem that undermines biological diversity, exacerbates climate change and often threatens forest-dependent communities. We will discuss strategies to address corruption and follow the money in regard to this illicit trade.
