Human Rights Watch traveled to Jakarta and West Kalimantan, Indonesia, for nine weeks in

May and October 2008 and October 2009, as well as to London in May 2008 and

Washington, DC in November 2008 to collect information for this report. We interviewed

government officials, analysts, advocates, journalists, and donors in the forestry,

governance, and health sectors. This work was supplemented by phone interviews and

additional research between May 2008 and October 2009. We collected government data on

wood production and consumption, wood imports and exports, forest revenues, health

statistics, and budget information, as well as independent analysis of these data from

various experts. We also collected forestry production and trade data from the UN Food and

Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO).

As this report documents, information on law enforcement activities and prosecutions is

extraordinarily difficult to obtain. Therefore, we supplemented our research with data

collected on these institutions by analysts and NGOs that monitor the judiciary, and forestry

and corruption cases in particular. We also collected information from public health experts

and local practitioners regarding impediments to the delivery of essential social services and

impacts on health outcomes.

A detailed explanation of the methods we used for estimating the amount of illegal logging

and missing revenues can be found in the Appendix.

Due to the sensitive nature of our inquiries into corruption and its impacts on failed

governance, the identities of many of the individuals we spoke with have been withheld to

protect them from retaliation.
