Twenty-five success stories: Illustrating ITTO’s 25-year quest to sustain tropical forests
This publication marks ITTO’s 25th anniversary by presenting 25 success stories. They show the breadth of ITTO’s work and to tell, in a simple way, the Organization’s 25-year story.
Thematic Programmes Brochure
This brochure provides a brief description of the five thematic programmes (TPs) which were approved on a pilot basis by the International Tropical Timber Council to help ITTO achieve the objectives of sustaining tropical forests and the timber trade arising from them. These five TPs, along with others that may be adopted, will become a permanent feature of ITTO’s work when a new governing treaty comes into force in 2011.
REDD-plus (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) – Forest Conservation in Developing Countries
This booklet, jointly produced by JICA and ITTO, aims to promote further understanding on- and interest in REDDplus by the interested parties and the general public. Printed with both English and Japanese text.
Keeping tropical forests
This brochure, produced for ITTO's display at the 2005 World Exposition in Aichi, Japan, gives an overview of ITTO and its activities and strategies.
A meeting of minds
Field practitioners recently exchanged views on the challenges of conservation in ecosystems that cross international borders. They agreed that transboundary conservation is a powerful concept, able to help protect biodiversity, reunite divided peoples, strengthen peace, protect catchments – and much more. The challenge, they said, is to make the concept work.
Restoring the forests
Today, vast areas of tropical forests are so damaged that their future is in serious doubt.
But all is not lost. We now have tools—forest restoration techniques—to give these forests a helping hand.
Mangroves: forests worth their salt
New approaches to mangrove management are clearly needed.
Not by thoughts alone
The International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO), the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Government of Congo are working together to protect the forest home of lowland gorillas and other threatened wildlife. Good intentions, put into action.
Windows of opportunity
A transparent tropical timber trade and a responsible forest industry can contribute to sustainable development and conservation in tropical countries.
More action is needed to address the causes and effects of tropical forest fires.
Assessing progress towards sustainable forest management in the tropics.
