In 2014 at least €19.8 million of illegal or high-risk timber from The DRC entered Europe and the US, despite international trade laws aimed at keeping these markets clean.

Open Knowledge assisted anti-corruption NGO Global Witness to create the DRC Timber Trade Tracker. It's a real-time map that uses open data to visualise the location of timber shipped by companies accused of systematic illegal logging and social and environmental abuses.
