Quel rôle pour les concessions dans la gestion durable des forêts tropicales? Bilan des expériences africaines, amazoniennes et asiatiques

In many countries, forest concessions have long been a central element in maintaining the forestry sector’s contribution to national economic development, through employment, taxes and rural land planning. But this model has weaknesses too, such as reported failures to fully support local standards of living and to conserve certain species and forest ecosystems. At the same time, it is competing with other land uses and forms of forest management.

Join this side event to discuss the evolution of this approach in the Congo Basin, Southeast Asia and the Amazon.
