2011 > 20 Key Indicators > Provisions for Transparency in Forest Laws

There are currently explicit provisions on transparency and access to information for the forest sector, which have been regulated through the Forest Law 29763 (recently approved but awaiting implementing regulation) and form part of the National Anti-Corruption Plan for the Forest and Wildlife Sector. These have still not been exercised, however, because they are in the process of being implemented.

Under the framework of the Law on Transparency and Access to Public Information 27806, information has been solictied on forest issues from the public institutions associated with the forest sector, but compliance with the deadlines for delivering the information indicated in the regulation is still inadequate and they do not provide the information requested; furthermore, they do not publish on their transparency websites the full information required by the Law.

The information provided by the government organisations influences decision-making. For example, access is allowed to the summaries of management plans and annual management reports, amongst other documents, which were not previously available to citizens.

With the implementation of the National Anti-Corruption Plan for the Forest and Forest Wildlife Sector, corrective measures will be applied to improve this situation. This is a step forward in encouraging access to information by citizens.
