Communities in the Congo Basin are heavily impacted by the twin threats of deforestation and climate change.
The Centre for International Forestry Research’s latest project COBAM aims to tackle these problems and create a synergy between climate change mitigation and adaptation through forestry projects in the region.
CIFOR visits one community involved in the project in Lukolela, DRC.
CIFOR is a nonprofit, global facility dedicated to advancing human wellbeing, environmental conservation and equity. Their research and expert analysis helps policy makers and practitioners shape effective policy, improve the management of tropical forests and address the needs and perspectives of people who depend on forests for their livelihoods.
