Bringing Tropical Forests under Sustainable Management

MAGNITUDE OF THE CHALLENGES


International tropical timber organization

NO TIMBER WITHOUT TREES

Study on the Status of Sustainable Forest Management (1989)

Main Conclusions

  • The extent of tropical forests being at an operational scale for the sustainable production of timber was, on a world scale, negligible;

  • Many countries had the intention, expressed in their legislation, to manage sustainably; in a number of these countries, partial forms of sustainable management were being practiced;

  • There seemed to be some awareness in these countries that action was needed to attain sustainable management;

  • Progress in establishing stable sustainable systems was so low that it was having very little impact on the state of tropical forests;

  • Comprehensive and urgent measures were necessary if the tropical timber trade was to continue in the long-term; and

  • The future existence of tropical forests depended on the establishment of sustainable systems of management.
