Briefing on major legal development on community forests in DRC

April 5, 2016

The government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) recently adopted a new legal regulation that could allow millions of its forest-dependent people to protect and manage their forest lands – some 14 years after the concept was first introduced in the 2002 Forest Code.


A new briefing by the Rainforest Foundation UK and Reseau Ressources Naturelles (RRN) considers some of the key features, challenges and opportunities emerging from this landmark development, highlighting the need for government, civil society and international actors to commit to a collective, long-term vision for community forestry in DRC.
