REM is a non-profit organisation that operates as Independent Monitor of Law Enforcement and Governance. Our mission is to stimulate government reform and action in natural resource extraction through independent monitoring and credible reporting of illegalities and related governance problems. We use this information to develop, with the concerned actors, constructive and viable solutions and assist in their implementation.

Clarification IM-FLEG vs FLEGT Audit roles

REM in the field


Our projects in Cameroon, the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Tanzania have documented hundreds of major forest infractions and supported government action

REM developed a pilot programme (Sri Lanka) to explore how lessons learned from IM-FLEG can be applied to the fisheries sector

System consolidating forest infractions collected by Independent Monitors (Jan 2016 - now)

Through Forest Legality, Environmental Governance and Trade (FLEGT) projects in timber producing countries, we have been supporting mandated and external Independent Monitors in the development of methodologies and their implementation so that the most severe forest infractions can be detected and documented with strong evidence giving civil society information credibility. This project is funded by the Forest Governance, Markets and Climate 2015 Grants round.
