Transboundary Conservation and Conflict Resolution: Lessons from projects commissioned by the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO)

Since 1990, The International Tropical Timber Organization has been involved in several conservation projects, which broadly include the following ecoregions: Borneo rainforest (Indonesia, Malaysia); Central African rainforest (Gabon, Cameroon, Republic of Congo); Southeast Asian forest (Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam) and the Andean rainforest (Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia). This report provides an evaluation of these projects in terms of their potential for peace-building, which has been a stated goal alongside conservation. Download report by clicking here.
