What do the colours on this map mean?
The countries are colour coded depending on their Timber Risk Score. The lower the score, the more widespread the risks of illegality in the country. The score is based on our assessment of 21 parameters relevant to timber legality. Each indicator deemed a low risk gets one point, while each indicator above low risk gets no point. We exclude the indicator(s) which are not applicable. The countries are ranked to enable comparison relative to violations of applicable laws. The scale does not measure the volume of timber affected by risk.
