Secondly, most Governments and institutions have thenotion that there is a clearance of tropical forests for agricultural use, which leads to most of thewood being consumed domestically as firewood and only a small percentage is used for exportpurposes. Finally, ignorance in exporting timber has been as a result of economists introducing anotion that even if there is the lifting of the ban against transporting timber products forpurposes of protecting the environment, might not be productive since it leads to severeeconomic and environmental costs.The organization has provided some of the effects of international trade of timber productswhich includes deforestation, poor climatic changes and short rainfalls affecting farmingactivities in the affected countriesPersonal thoughtsoThe organization has failed to provide actual statistics on the affected countriesFrankel, Jeffrey. 2009.
