As a European contribution to the Observatory for the Forests of Central Africa initiative, JRC is building the FORAF project, with a
consortium of scientific institutions led by CIRAD (FRANCE) and comprised of the Center for International Forestry Research /
CIFOR (Indonesia), Forêt Ressources Management / FRM (France), and the Université Catholique de Louvain / UCL (Belgium).
The Observatory will present its results and analyses in reports, indicator tables, and maps. All of which will all be available
through a website scheduled to be launched at the end of 2007. Several outreach and training workshops will be held in the
region to support the production of quality data and facilitate the use of such data in the decision making process.
