Controlling private loggers

Logging in particularly tropical forests is typically carried out by private firms, under government terms. Such terms and agreements may be ignored at the peril of the environment, and forestry agencies or other regulatory bodies may be unwilling or unable to enforce them. In many countries enforcers have been bribed or killed in the process. Private logging may, therefore, in cases need to be controlled more effectively.
In Indonesia, private, national and international firms are being recruited to monitor compliance with logging concessions.
