This international workshop was organized in conjunction with the Ministry of Environment, Conservation of Nature and Tourism of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
A number of proposals for the conservation and sustainable management of the DRC's forests and for the financing of these activities were presented. The aim of the meeting was to enable wider consultation on these proposals, to discuss their feasibility and effectiveness, and to identify a roadmap for their implementation. The meeting was attended by 120 participants, with representatives of government, international agencies, academia, civil society, conservation organisations and the private sector.
The meeting was financed by the UK's Department for International Development (DFID), with additional support from GTZ, the German agency for technical cooperation, and in association with the World Bank, European Commission, Belgian Development Cooperation and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
This meeting was organized as part of a project to explore new models for forest management and financing in DRC.
