Due to their carbon sequestration potential, tropical forests are a focal point for mitigation of climate change through Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation REDD. The Democratic Republic of Congo DRC contains the largest part of the Congo Basin, the second largest rainforest in the world, and has become a main focus for REDD initiatives. with the rainforest of the Congo Basin. Each case study is examined in turn. 3. Case Study 3.1 Case Study1: Cameroon Cameroon’s dense tropical rainforest of the Congo Basin is estimated at19,631,000 hectares Mbile et al., 2008 and the country is ranked the world sixth largest exporter of tropical woods and the leading producer of these -1.5%. economic resource with tropical wood trade making up an average 6% of GDP and 10% of foreign trade in the Congo Basin countries FAO, 2009. In recent years there has been significant growth in the. tropical rainforest, and the largest in Africa. Forestry in the Congo Basin is similar to arrangements in tropical rainforests elsewhere, with most land being cut under large-scale >100,000 ha concessions Mertens et al., 2001, along with other arrangements for felling of trees at smaller scales 2500 ha in the Cameroon case. Of the ﬁve.

Bambuti, also called Mbuti, a group of Pygmies of the Ituri Forest of eastern Congo Kinshasa.They are the shortest group of Pygmies in Africa, averaging under 4 feet 6 inches 137 cm in height, and are perhaps the most famous. In addition to their stature, they also differ in blood type from their Bantu- and Sudanic-speaking agriculturalist neighbours, and they are probably the earliest.
Industrial-scale sustainable forest management SFM in the tropics i.e., managed selective harvesting of timber has been widely promoted by the international community as a key mechanism to combat tropical deforestation. SFM is integrated into most United Nations UN instruments in which sustainable development or biodiversity conservation is addressed, and SFM was recently endorsed. Aug 03, 2016 · The DRC accounts for two-thirds of the Congo Basin forest, which represents 10% of all tropical forests of the world and more than 47% of those of Africa. The overall annual net deforestation rate has been estimated at 0.2% from 1990 onwards, a net loss of about 300,000 km each year. 4. Cameroon is also part of the Congo Basin forest ecosystem, the world’s second largest contiguous block of tropical forest on the planet. The Congo Basin harbors extraordinary biodiversity and a high level of endemism.5 It forms an integrated ecological unit encompassing.

May 12, 2017 · Congo Basin Forests. Forests in the Congo Basin, with nearly 230 million hectares, are the second largest rainforest in the world after the Amazon rainforest. A dozen countries share this huge forest area, but in the case of our study, we will limit ourselves to the six forest countries of Central Africa, of which Congo-Brazzaville is a part. Keywords: Congo Basin, drivers of change, environmental impacts, industrial logging, socioeconomic constraints INTRODUCTION The Congo Basin is home to the second largest area of tropical rainforest in the world.

The African Pygmies or Congo Pygmies, variously also "Central African foragers", "African rainforest hunter-gatherers" RHG or "Forest People of Central Africa" are a group of ethnicities native to Central Africa, mostly the Congo Basin, traditionally subsisting on a forager and hunter-gatherer lifestyle. They are divided into three roughly geographic groups. 6 See for example: Karsenty, A. and Gourlet-Fleury, S. Assessing sustainability of logging pratices in the Congo Basin's managed forests: the issue of commercial species recovery. Ecology and Society, 2006. 111; Shearman, P. et al.

Dec 20, 2017 · The report, 'The cut-price sale of DRC's forests,' reveals how a range of tax breaks and other illegal incentives offered by the Ministry of Forests, Nature Conservation and Tourism MECNT allow the logging industry to skirt Congo's laws and deprive the Congolese people of the few economic benefits they are due in return for the felling of. Since the mid-1990s, Cameroon has launched a process of decentralization of the management of its forests. Among other innovations, this decentralization process has transferred powers over forests and financial benefits accruing from their exploitation to local communities. This article explores and profiles such local-level outcomes. It shows that the experiment has not yet brought up.
Deforestation and forest degradation represent an important part of global CO 2 emissions. The identification of the multiple drivers of land-use change, past and present forest cover change and associated carbon budget, and the presence of locally adapted systems to allow for proper monitoring are particularly lacking in sub-Saharan Africa SSA. There?s a big difference between the forests of the Congo Basin and West Africa. Malhi says there?s been extensive deforestation in West Africa. Much of the land has been cleared for agriculture.

Second, the article argues that decentralized management is not producing positive economic results, as there is no significant economic change in the case study villages. Third, it demonstrates that the experiment is leading to negative environmental results, such as the degradation of many community forests in the forested Cameroon.
While there is less agreement about the effectiveness of the REDD regime, there is some consensus that the regime would be impacted negatively by illegal logging, which is endemic in tropical parts of the world, particularly in the forest-rich countries in the Congo Basin [13,14,15].Illegal logging is repeatedly linked to forest loss and community dissension in the Congo Basin [16,17]. Center for International Forestry Research CIFOR CIFOR advances human well-being, equity and environmental integrity by conducting innovative research, developing partners’ capacity, and actively engaging in dialogue with all stakeholders to inform policies and practices that affect forests and people. 4 • Resource Guide on Rainforest Protection This Resource Guide offers religious and faith communities information on the current deforestation crisis, spiritual perspectives on the vital role of tropical forests in the world’s biological and spiritual ecology, and suggestions for. Yanomami, South American Indians, speakers of a Xiriana language, who live in the remote forest of the Orinoco River basin in southern Venezuela and the northernmost reaches of the Amazon River basin in northern Brazil. They practice slash-and-burn agriculture and live in small semipermanent villages.
