    This article describes the strategies and activities of the Forest Integrity Network. One of the most important underlying causes of forest degradation is corruption and related illegal logging. The Forest Integrity Network is a timely new initiative to combat forest corruption. Its approach is to form global multi-stakeholder coalitions between the civil, private and public sectors and to create synergies between organizations fighting corruption, like Transparency International, and actors concerned with forest conservation and sustainable use. The article describes FIN's current activity in analyzing the relevance of Transparency International's corruption fighting strategies for the forest sector and its future plans to produce an operational Forest Corruption Fighters' Tool Kit. FIN also aims to develop conceptual frameworks for cross-country comparisons and compile replicable best practices in tackling forest corruption.
