Poverty, limited education, financial issues, economic instability and population growth are enabling factors for illegal activity as well.
During the last five to ten years, addressing illegal logging and illegal trade has risen to the top of the international forestry agenda. Several international processes have taken up this issue. Demand for legally-sourced wood and paper-based products in global markets has also increased, as a result of changes in public and private procurement policies (Table 5: Selected public procurement policies, Table 6: Selected legality requirements in the private sector, and Table 7: Examples of Trade Associations' demand for legal wood products). Trade regulations such as the 2008 amendment of the U.S. Lacey Act, and the European Union Illegal Timber Regulation, have become the most recent instruments to address illegal logging (Box 6: The U.S. Lacey Act, the EU Illegal Timber Regulation (EUTR), and the Australian Illegal Logging Prohibition).

This table highlights a few examples of private procurement policies that address the legality of the wood and paper-based products they purchase. For the purposes of this Guide, the table focuses exclusively on legality. However, for most, if not all, of the policies highlighted, the legality requirements are contained within a larger sustainability and/or corporate responsibility policy covering several other aspects.
