Logging, Mining, And Agricultural Concessions Data Transparency: A Survey Of 14 Forested Countries
Improving transparency of concessions data—the who, what, when and where of commercial activities that drive over 60% of global deforestation—is critical to preventing forest loss.

This infographic shows key findings from a new WRI study on land concessions data transparency in 14 forested countries and provides recommendations that nations can adopt to improve access to concessions data.
