ITTO Projects and Pre-Projects: Time-bound electronic no objection procedure
In accordance with the 2021 Project Cycle, the following is the list of revised Category 1 project and pre-project proposals recommended by the Fifty-sixth Expert Panel for Technical Appraisal of Project and Pre-project Proposals for Members' consideration and approval. Additionally, the following proposals are included in this “electronic no objection procedure”:
- project proposals recommended as Category 4 (proposals the Panel could not commend to the Committee, e.g. proposals where complete reformulation is necessary; not relevant, or with insufficient information, etc.,) by the Fifty-sixth Expert Panel;
- project proposals which were earlier approved – resubmitted for extension of validity as per the sunset provision of Decision 2(X);
- PD 712/13 Rev.3 (F) - project proposal which was earlier approved and funded – revised to be implemented in two phases and resubmitted.
The deadline for Members to state objections to the Expert Panel ratings and the other proposals is 20 September 2021. In the event of any Category 1 project or pre-project receiving an objection (or a Category 4 project receiving an endorsement for approval), it would be referred to the Fifty-seventh Session of the Council and Associated Sessions of the Committees for final decision. Category 1 projects which receive no objections from members will be deemed to have been approved by the International Tropical Timber Council and will be listed on the ITTO website for donor consideration.
