CIFOR’s COBAM project is backstopping five pilot projects in the Congo Basin, with the aim of testing and documenting the feasibility of synergy between adaptation to climate change and mitigation (REDD+) at the community level. The intention is to find a way of combining Sustainable Forest Management, the Convention on Biological Diversity and UNFCCC with community well-being, by taking stock of opportunities and negotiating  trade-offs.

The five pilot projects are:

  1. Monte Alen Landscape, Equatorial Guinea (English) (Espagnol)
  2. Kahuzi-Biega National Park, DRC (Français)
  3. Lukolela, DRC (Français)
  4. Parc National des Volcanoes, Rwanda (Français)
  5. Cameroun (Français)
