Note to readers
This issue of the TFU is shorter than usual due to funding constraints and is not being circulated to our 15,000 subscribers (it will only be available online, with a limited number of copies printed for the 47th ITTC session). Funding constraints have also affected the publication schedule/frequency of the TFU in 2011. It is hoped that the regular length and publication schedule of the TFU can be resumed in 2012 through the provision of sufficient voluntary contributions or through the inclusion of this work in ITTO’s core activities budget under the terms of the International Tropical Timber Agreement, 2006 when it enters into force.
