2011 > 20 Key Indicators > Forest Infractions

In accordance with the Forest Code, the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Tourism is in charge of monitoring infractions and collecting related data. It has delegated this task to the Department for Control and Verification and its forest inspectors. The Directorate for Control and Verification struggles to monitor infractions due to a lack of resources and expertise, although they are required to do so by law. Legal proceedings against parties who have committed infractions in the forests are very rare.
