The Multi-Resource Forest Inventory for Preparation of a Land Allocation Plan aims to provide the State with necessary information to sustainably manage its forest heritage and incorporate it in national economic planning. It's initiated because despite the size of Congo’s forestry sector (forest cover estimated at 22.5 million hectares, approximately 2/3 of the total area), no exhaustive forest resource inventory has been conducted to date. The existing data is incomplete, unreliable, fragmented, and dispersed among various players and national institutions. This situation impedes strategic planning of the forestry sector and an assessment of its economic, social and environmental impact. Environmentally, it will allow for a thorough assessment of forest resources, land occupation and use. Therefore, it offers an opportunity to reformulate the national forestry policy and its related strategies to guarantee sustainable forest management and conservation. The project is scheduled to take thirty months (or two and a half years) for a total cost evaluated at EUR 2,915,880. The project comprises four components, namely: (i) forest management and sustainable practice; (ii) ecological and socio-economic monitoring and baseline data; (iii) Carbon market benefits and ecosystem service payments; and (iv) project management.
The general objective of the project is to contribute to the sustainable management and use of Congo’s forest ecosystems and improved well-being of the local population. Specifically, the project will help to: (i) build knowledge on the national forestry resource; and (ii) better protect and allocate land to boost agricultural productivity.
The project’s direct beneficiaries are mainly forest resource information users and actors, natural resource managing sectors, the local population, associations, NGOs, the private sector and international partners. Other direct beneficiaries comprise categories of persons who will supply temporary labour, namely: 100 Geographic Information System (GIS) operators; 200 technicians/team leaders and 4,500 inventory takers. Congo’s entire population estimated at 3.8 million (2007 census) will be the final project beneficiaries, thanks to good forestry sector planning, rational and sustainable use. The project will indirectly benefit the Central African region and the entire planet due to the role played by Congo Basin forests in curbing climate change.
