Tropical Forest Update

When communities and governments collaborate

For more than 30 years, ITTO has been bringing communities, governments and the private sector together. It has done this in many ways but especially through its projects and activities, of which there have been more than one thousand. The best results are always achieved when diverse actors work cooperatively towards a shared vision around environmental sustainability, economic development and social empowerment. This edition of the TFU features stories from ITTO projects in which non-governmental organizations have brought together local authorities, communities and enterprises to effect lasting change.
