Founded in 1951 and located in the Campus of the Tropical Agronomy Garden of Nogent-sur-Marne, the International Technical Association of Tropical Timber (ATIBT) brings together 130 members from 20 tropical timber consuming and producing countries. It is both a technical and scientific leading authority on tropical timber resource, representing the industry’s professionals to the various stakeholders (States, international organizations, NGOs…) and a manager of international programs dedicated to sustainable and responsible management of tropical forests. Working with ATIBT means sharing its mission: contributing to the sustainable and responsible development of the tropical forest-timber sector, from the forests to the market, a mission that simultaneously ensures economic viability, and social fairness in producing countries and preservation of forest ecosystems.
