Support for the International Program Coordination in Latin America – ITTO-CITES Programme, implemented by the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO), in collaboration with the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) – Phase I (2008-2011) and Phase II (2012-2016).
The Program focused on high value timber species in Latin America, such as mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla), cedar (Cedrela odorata), palo santo (Bulnesia sarmientoi), Brazilian rosewood (Aniba rosaeodora) and rosewood (Dalbergia). This program is implemented through projects proposed by actors of the five countries involved, leading exporters of wood products deriving from these native species, including Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala, Guyana and Peru. As part of the coordination, STCP Consultants have participated in the evaluation and monitoring of these projects in the countries that are part of the Program.
