FGDH (Forum pour la Gouvernance et les Droits de l’'Homme) are located in Brazzaville, in the Republic of Congo. FGDH works with forest communities at the national level. RFUK has worked with FGDH since 2009, mainly on research projects examining the situation of land rights of forest communities, as well as their customary systems of land governance and use.
OCDH (Observatoire Congolais des Droits de l’Homme) was founded in 1994. The organisation works to promote human rights, the rule of law and democracy in the Republic of Congo. OCDH provides assistance to human rights victims in Brazzaville and Congo and also works with forest and indigenous communities to promote their collective rights in forest governance processes. We have worked with OCDH since 2003.
