COBAM News - Special Issue - May 2013 - Climate Change and Forests in the Congo Basin (COBAM)

COBAM News – Special Issue – May 2013

COBAM News – Special Issue was published at the occasion of CIFOR’s 20th anniversary conference held in Central Africa on 22 and 23 May 2013. As a first edition released halfway through the project, it presents the state of advancement two years after the project was started, e.g. results so far obtained in terms of research on adaptation and mitigation policies and actors at the national level and the characteristic and specificities of the landscapes in which pilot projects on synergy between adaptation and mitigation are taking place. In sum, it answers the following questions: “What actions have taken places since 2010 when the project was launched? What results have been achieved? What are the future prospects?”
