Despite five (5) phases completed to date, the ITTO program support to improve statistics on forest and timber in Gabon has not been fully brought to fruition. This small project aims to build upon the achievements of previous projects, applying nationwide the computer module Trace Bois Gabon (Gabon Timber Tracking) designed for the collection and processing of Gabon’s statistics on forests and timber, for the benefit of the Ministry of Water and Forest Resources and that of economic operators in the timber sector.
The project includes work on finalizing software development, and a training program for all users. It aims to provide a dashboard of the forest and timber economy in Gabon, and to provide the related monitoring structure.
Following this project, all the statistical data on forests, forest production, timber processing and trade in Gabon will be compiled and computer processed to track the products from the forest to processing plants and final marketing and sale outlets.
