Global Witness

Global Witness is an international non-profit, non-governmental organization working in the area of natural resource governance. We have permanent offices in the United Kingdom and the United States. We investigate and campaign to expose the links between natural resources, corruption, conflict, environmental degradation and human rights abuses in dozens of developing countries in Asia, Africa and, more recently, in Latin America. Our strategy involves on the ground investigative work followed by development of policy recommendations and direct advocacy with decision-makers to promote positive change. Our campaigns in the forest sector have been instrumental in exposing and stemming the flow of illegal timber in countries ranging from Cambodia to Madagascar.
