Name Baseline Study 5, Thailand: Overview of Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade

The data used for this report was collected by Kevin Woods and based on literature reviews as well as semistructured interviews with RFD officials, academics in Thai universities, and the private sector. In all cases, interviewees were told that that the study was funded by the European Forestry Institute and would likely result in a public report. Unless otherwise noted, data on wood import and export volumes was compiled by James Hewitt for the European Forestry Institute. The primary source of these trade statistics originates from the Customs Department of the Kingdom of Thailand. Additional sources were World Trade Atlas and UN Comtrade. Also, Thai newspapers were an important source for secondary data. Donor reports and web-based newspapers were instrumental in obtaining secondary data. Every effort has been made to provide pertinent analyses and accurate quantitative figures on the Thai forest product trade. Also, it should be clear that while this report strives to be as comprehensive as possible regarding the forest law enforcement, governance and forest products trade in Thailand, some aspects of this initiative may not have been captured.
