Lomé hosts from Dec. 2 to 7 the 55th session of the International Tropical Timber Council

(Togo First) - Lomé is hosting this week, the 55th session of the International Tropical Timber Council (ITTC). 

The council will be discussing ways to boost and diversify global sales of tropical timber. 

Togo on this occasion plans to ask for more funds to be spent on boosting natural resource management, forest management, and supervision of populations. In effect, the West African country will submit various projects for financing. Some of these projects aim at preventing and ensuring participative management of wildfires, protecting the classified forest and the Fosse aux Lions national park in the Savanes region.  

Other key topics which will be debated during the ongoing session include the current state of intra-African trade, the sustainable management of protected forest areas all over the continent, biodiversity preservation, or adaptation to climate change. More than 300 participants, from the five continents, are expected at the event.
