The Democratic Republic of Congo Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (DRC-PCLG) was established in 2014 and is convened by Stronger Roots

Our work

DRC-PCLG has benefited from support provided by the Arcus Foundation to PCLG. Between 2013 - 2015, activities included exploring the interest and need for a national DRC-PCLG group including:

  • holding a scoping meeting in DRC with conservation and development practitioners; and

  • discussing specific research and communication needs that could be addressed by a DRC group of the PCLG.

DRC-PCLG has received further support from Arcus foundation to continue these efforts into 2018 and 2019. The work of DRC-PCLG relates to PCLG's broader thematic interest in great apes.

Resources

DRC-PCLG periodically publishes workshop reports, discussion papers and policy briefs. These can be viewed at  PCLG Publications.

DRC-PCLG has also produced other resources including communicating strategies for great ape conservation and poverty alleviation.
