Timber trade flows and actors in Myanmar: The political economy of Myanmar’s timber trade

This report provides detail on the complexity of Myanmar's timber trade. The report describes the geographic origin of timber, the movement of the timber within the country and across borders, actors involved in the harvesting, processing and trade, and the politics that together determine Myanmar wood's legality, sustainability and ethical sourcing. The author argues that the dynamics of all five timber sources and associated actors needs to be better understood – their legality, sustainability, and ethics – as the timber that is being exported is usually an amalgamation of all possible wood sources.
