Guyana is a country with massive, and largely unspoiled, forest resources, totalling some 18.6 million hectares. A new report, titled "Forest Law Enforcement and Governance and Forest Practices in Guyana," has been published jointly by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and the Iwokrama International Centre for Rainforest Research.
The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) has issued a report titled "Financial governance and Indonesia’s Reforestation Fund during the Soeharto and post-Soeharto periods, 1989–2009: A political economic analysis of lessons for REDD+". The report assesses the financial management of one of the world's largest national forest funds and draws lessons for coming REDD efforts. It highlights the fact that the Reforestation Fund has been dogged by corruption issues; for example, Ernst & Young documented losses of $5.2 billion in public funds between 1993 and 1998.
