Tropical Timber Program
The Sustainable Trade Initiative has, in cooperation with other partners, set up the Congo Basin Program. The Congo Basin Program is part of IDH's Tropical Timber Program. IDH is the main funder and also plays a role in advising and supporting Form in their role as program coordinator.
IDH’s mission is to accelerate and upscale the sustainable production and the trade of commodities in collaboration with private partners, civil society organizations and governments. Core strategy of the Tropical Timber Program is to improve the business case for change by supporting certification in tropical timber producing regions AND to increase the market share of sustainable tropical timber in Europe. Regularly, ideas are shared with the various sister programs: The Amazone Alternative, The Borneo Initiative, and Linking Europe.
