Joint GFMC and ITTO Activities


The International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) (www.itto.int) is an intergovernmental organization established by a United Nations-negotiated treaty to promote sustainable development through tropical forest management, tropical forest conservation, and a sustainable tropical timber trade. ITTO formulates policies related to the sustainable management of tropical forests (including on the management of forest fire) and funds projects to implement such policies in the forest.
