This presentation (in Spanish) gives some details of the complex timber consumption dynamics in the domestic Mexican market and makes three suggestions for confronting the problem of illegal logging: a) emphasize the fight on the legal market by strengthening the focus on the surveillance of community forests and warehouses, roadside inspections and certificate of origin systems; b) simplify paperwork and handling costs; and c) create a mechanism that encourages
consumption of timber of legal origin in the private and government sectors.
