Forests Monitor works to increase transparency and accountability of the forestry sector in order to improve governance and management of the world’s forests. Forests Monitor's mission is to facilitate the development of a forestry sector that is truly sustainable and equitable – one that will improve livelihoods for forest-dependent peoples and contribute to long-term economic development within forested countries. Forests Monitor works to achieve this through investigating and monitoring the timber industry and providing training in forest monitoring and law enforcement. Through these activities, Forests Monitor seek to establish an open and transparent dialogue with all concerned actors.  Forests Monitor has found that industrial logging, rather than contributing towards sustainable development, often drives corruption, conflict and poverty. In response to this, Forests Monitor is exploring alternative models for forest management, focusing in particular on community-based forestry. Based in the UK, Forests Monitor has a national office in Congo-Brazzaville. With extensive experience in Africa, Forests Monitor have also undertaken projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Malaysia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Russia. A non-profit, non-governmental organization, Forests Monitor was established in 1993 and incorporated as a private limited company in January 1995.
