ITTO is an intergovernmental organization promoting the conservation and sustainable management, use and trade of tropical forest resources. Its members represent about 80% of the world's tropical forests and 90% of the global tropical timber trade. The ITTO facilitates discussion, consultation and international cooperation on issues relating to the international trade and utilization of tropical timber and the sustainable management of its resource base.
ITTO offers fellowships through the Freezailah Fellowship Fund to promote human resource development and to strengthen professional expertise in member countries in tropical forestry and related disciplines. The goal is to promote the sustainable management of tropical forests, the efficient use and processing of tropical timber, and better economic information about the international trade in tropical timber.
- Promote good governance and enabling policy frameworks for strengthening SFM and related trade, and enhancing SFM financing and investment.
- Increase the contribution of tropical forests to national and local economies, including through international trade.
- Enhance the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in tropical timber producing forests.
- Reduce tropical deforestation and forest degradation and enhance the provision of environmental services.
- Improve the quality and availability of information on tropical forests, forest product markets, and trade.
- Build and develop human resource capacity to implement SFM and increase trade in forest goods and services from sustainably managed forests.
