Given that law enforcement activities against illegal logging appear not to have had a significant deterrent effect to date, the paper examines the possibility of using anti-money laundering approaches that already exist in Indonesia and neighbouring countries (Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia) to target both the financing of, and proceeds from, this activity. It suggests that the ‘follow the money’ approach is not as flexible as some commentators have suggested.
