Lessons learned & good practices from the ITTO Meta Evaluation towards sustainable management of tropical forests
The summaries synthesize key common issues, lessons learned and good practices which have emerged from ITTO's projects targeted at sustainable management of tropical forests and development of associated trade in tropical timber and timber products.
The purpose of the lessons learned is to assist stakeholders in implementing sustainable management of tropical forests. In addition, project formulators and implementers in designing and executing ITTO projects should benefit from the earlier lessons learned. While the ITTO Manual for Project Formulation (2009) remains the main guidance for project design, the summaries provide valuable additional information extracted from previous projects. Each section contains the following parts: (ⅰ) Introduction, (ⅱ) key issues, (ⅲ) lessons learned, and (ⅳ) good practices.
