Save the date to attend the Sustainable Forest Management and the Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
The International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) is an intergovernmental organization promoting the sustainable management and conservation of tropical forests and the expansion and diversification of international trade in tropical timber from sustainably managed and legally harvested forests. ITTO:
- Develops internationally agreed policy guidelines and norms to encourage sustainable forest management (SFM) and sustainable tropical timber industries and trade.
- Assists tropical member countries to adapt such guidelines and norms to local circumstances and to implement them in the field through projects and other activities.
At this side-event, which will focus on efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Africa, experts and high-level dignitaries will share experiences, lessons learned and best practices on the sustainable management of tropical forests in Africa. Participants will discuss initiatives towards developing legal and sustainable supply chains from the forest to consumers and their impacts in moving towards achieving the SDGs. ITTO and Japan’s Forestry Agency are co-organizing the event.
