New ITTO project video demonstrates implementation of a comprehensive electronic forest information system in Guatemala


Determining the legality of forest products and implementing monitoring mechanisms that promote legal forest practices has been a challenge for many tropical timber producing countries, such as Guatemala. The National Forest Institute (INAB) of Guatemala has recently released a video showcasing the Electronic Forest Enterprises Information System (SEINEF), being implemented through the ITTO project TMT-PD004/11 Rev.2 (M). SEINEF is a traceability system for registering, monitoring and controlling the flow of forest products through companies that are legally established and registered in the country.
