The International Tropical Timber Agreement 2006 (ITTA) builds on the foundations of two previous agreements, focusing on the world tropical timber economy and the sustainable management of tropical timber. The ITTA promotes the timber trade and the improved management of the forests. The ITTA also contains provisions for information sharing, including the sharing of non-tropical timber trade data, and allows for the consideration of non-tropical timber issues as they relate to tropical timber.
