The global demand for sustainable technical wood products is growing rapidly. Technical wood business based on fast growing tree species planted in community forests will contribute to poverty alleviation. Community forests play a major role in increasing income for small farmers and reducing tropical deforestation. Technical wood products from Indonesia are made of sengon wood, jabon wood, rubber, balsa, cotton wood and bamboo.
The Ministry of Trade of the Republic of Indonesia and the Indonesian Light Wood Association (ILWA) are supported by SIPPO to enhance their service provision to Indonesian wood producers in accessing global market.
