Profiles of Guyana, Ghana, Ivory Coast and Indonesia uploaded
The first profiles that were published on ETTF’s Timber Trade Portal were the ones of Ghana, Guyana, Ivory Coast and Indonesia. All published profiles have been reviewed by at least one expert party, such as local forestry officials.
The information on industry and legality has been gathered and compiled by Form international. Multiple available sources have been used, such as the FAO and ITTO, data from ITC and local governments. Visitors of the website are also invited to add information or share their experiences, using the review button on the country profiles.
