Extension du projet de cartographie participative dans l'Ingende, territoire de la province de l’Équateur, en République démocratique du Congo

Meet the Community Lawyers

The Rainforest Foundation (RFUK) develops special field programmes for teams of young African lawyers known as Community legal field workers (CLFWs) to work with forest communities, indigenous peoples and local organisations to help them defend community rights in relation to land and resources, confront abuses of forest peoples’ rights and obtain essential legal documents such as identity papers. Since 2005, we have worked in numerous countries in the Congo Basin to support community lawyers, and are currently working in Gabon and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to train these local lawyers to provide direct support to communities to defend their rights.
