    TNRC Guide | Conducting a corruption-oriented situation analysis for conservation work: Guidance from experience (, )

    May 05, 2023

    A corruption-oriented situation analysis can help conservation and natural resource management (NRM) practitioners understand and respond to the threats that corruption poses to conservation and NRM outcomes. As part of the Targeting Natural Resource Corruption (TNRC) project, WWF teams in different countries conducted situation analyses to inform both small-scale pilot projects and large-scale investments, in each case aiming to get a better idea of the ways that corruption may impact NRM activities and how they could design projects that would respond more effectively to those threats. Part I of this guide collects lessons from their experience and provides insights on implementing this type of analysis. Part II shares three case studies and analysis tools for doing corruption-oriented situation analysis.

  • TNRC Guide Manual for Serbian civil society organisations | Processes of development and adoption of spatial and urban plans with special focus on protected areas (, )

    February 14, 2023

    There are challenges facing the preservation and management of protected natural areas in Serbia, despite the country's positive regulations and commitments. Illegal construction and large capital projects have endangered these areas due to limited management opportunities and insufficient government action and civil society organizations have limited standing to act in procedures related to the protection of these areas, which further hinders their active participation. This manual helps Serbian civil society organizations understand rules of spatial and urban planning, opportunities for public participation, key illegal practices in the management and implementation of activities within protected areas, legal procedures, and how to improve citizen participation to combat corruption.

    This manual was created as part of the "Systematic and early engagement as a cure for policy capture and a key instrument for prevention of corruption in policy planning" project implemented by WWF Adria in Serbia, funded by the Targeting Natural Resource Corruption (TNRC) project.

    The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a collaboration of over 150 national and local governments and more than 1000 civil society partners working to promote transparent, participatory, inclusive, and accountable governance. OGP offers a promising opportunity to bring transparency, participation, and accountability to the governance of natural resources, as participating governments collaborate with their civil societies to commit to concrete, impactful reforms to bring transparency, accountability, and participation to bear on the most relevant and important challenges those publics face. This guidance shows how conservation organizations can start taking advantage of OGP as a possible key platform for accomplishing conservation priorities.

    Sustainable livelihood projects can be vulnerable to corruption risks that may contribute to further social and environmental damage. This guide has been developed for programming designers and implementers aiming to reduce corruption's impact on community-based conservation initiatives. It contains three modules exploring the corruption opportunities, power, and justifications that might manifest in three typical sustainable livelihood interventions. Each module identifies corruption risks in that activity type and anti-corruption responses that have been tried or can be considered to address those risks.

    TNRC Topic Brief: Community forestry and reducing corruption: Perspectives from the Peruvian Amazon (, )

    May 24, 2022

    Indigenous communities play an essential role in successful forest conservation. Community Forest Management (CFM) is a tool that promotes the participation of Indigenous peoples in forest conservation and sustainable management by preventing abuses from third parties and community leaders that could act against the common interest. While CFM has led to many positive results, a variety of obstacles inhibit Indigenous communities’ involvement in CFM-based legal timber harvesting, such as forest-related corruption, a lack of technical and financial support, bureaucratic barriers, and lack of capacity. This Brief aims to help fill knowledge gaps, generating recommendations to strengthen initiatives that promote the participation of Indigenous communities in forest conservation and sustainable management.

    TNRC Open secrets: Corruption in Free Trade and Special Economic Zones as an enabler for illegal wildlife trade (, )

    May 12, 2022

    This paper presents three case studies that portray how Free Trade Zones (FTZ) and Special Economic Zones (SEZ) characteristics contribute both to Illegal wildlife trade and corruption, while also demonstrating that wildlife trafficking is merely an expression of the multiple illicit economies that can take place in FTZs/SEZs in the absence of adequate controls. These cases also demonstrate that the corrupt practices within these areas do not necessarily differ from other forms of corruption happening elsewhere in the country, region, or trade chain. Rather, what makes FTZs/SEZs particularly interesting for illicit trade is the additional layer of opaqueness and complexity that they pose for local authorities.

    The causes, pace, and magnitude of deforestation and forest degradation have changed over time. The way that different deforestation drivers are connected and the effects they have on forest ecosystems vary across regions. While progress has been made in halting forest loss and degradation, both continue at alarming rates. This report provides a comprehensive analysis of deforestation, connecting drivers and responses on a global scale.

  • Exploring Smallholder Solutions in the Rubber Sector Brochure

    Exploring Smallholder Solutions in the Rubber Sector (application/pdf, 7.26 MB)

    September 22, 2020

    HeveaConnect, Target Corporation, and World Wildlife Fund are engaged in finding solutions to enhance the production and trade of sustainable natural rubber. The three organizations came together in 2019 around the shared interest in understanding how the processing and sale of rubberwood might incentivize the adoption of sustainable practices by natural rubber smallholders and enhance their livelihoods.

    We enlisted the services of Financial Access to analyze the potential of rubberwood to serve as a mechanism to support smallholder financing in Indonesia. Low yields are one of the main issues plaguing rubber smallholders in Indonesia, who are often forced to replace rubber with other commodities to improve their livelihoods. This has consequences for Indonesia’s dominant position in the rubber sector, farmers’ livelihoods and ability to rise out of poverty, and potentially drives deforestation as new land is often cleared to meet demand.

    This report investigates the viability of selling rubberwood from the perspective of all stakeholders in the supply chain. We identify a financing scheme that has the potential to ensure that a smallholder avoids a cash shortfall during or after replanting. Although the scope of the analysis was limited to two provinces in Sumatra, the findings of this study could be used there and elsewhere in Indonesia to inform the development of sustainable natural rubber initiatives that include the processing and trade of rubberwood as one of several strategies to support equity in natural rubber supply chains.
