Webinar: Using Big Data to Detect Illegality in Tropical Sector with Pedro Moura Costa

A recent study by BVRio Institute (iBVRio) in Brazil found that more than 40% of the forest management operations in the Pará e Mato Grosso states are likely to be involved in severe breaches of the law, including timber theft from conservation areas or indigenous reserves, use of slave labour, and/or laundering of stolen timber by defrauding the official control systems. Only 10% of the cases analysed by iBVRio did not show any indication of irregularity.
