The International Tropical Timber Organization
The International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO), established by the ITTA, is the only international organization specialized in sustainable development of the tropical forests. ITTO includes producer and consumer countries of tropical forest products. Its 58 members, including the European Union, represent together 95 percent of the world trade in tropical timber and 75 percent of the world’ s tropical forests. An evaluation of the 14 years collaboration between SECO and ITTO highlighted the constant improvement of ITTO in capacity building and its excellent levels of quality in the management of the project cycle and as a platform between producers and consumers.
