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 the risk of illegality occurring in 21 areas of law relevant to timber legality. Each indicator that is deemed low risk gets one point, each indicator that is not low risk gets no point. We exclude the indicator(s) which are not applicable from the calculation. The countries are not ranked because the scores do not enable comparison of countries because we identify whether particular laws are at risk of being broken; we do not measure the volume of timber affected by that risk.
