Yokohama, Japan, 24 July 2023: A one-minute animation produced as part of an ITTO project in Brazil provides a simple explanation of forest management and how it is helping make timber production more sustainable in the Amazon. “Everyone wins from the sustainable use of forests,” says the video.
The video also introduces ITTO project PD 452/07 Rev. 5 (F) “Sustainable management of production forests at the commercial scale in the Brazilian Amazon, phase II”, which is being implemented by Embrapa (the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation). The project has developed tools to assist communities and enterprises in preparing and implementing sustainable forest management plans, which must be approved by authorities before logging can commence.
