Contribution of woodfuel to meet the energy needs of the population of Central Africa: Prospects for sustainable management of available resources

Export citation

This chapter provides an overview of the woodfuel sector in the Congo Basin countries, with a special emphasis on those areas where the exploitation of woodfuel poses threats to the sustainability of the resource base and to the livelihoods of those depending on it. With regard to the fact that little data exist, this chapter draws upon information from recent studies to present an overview of the knowledge base in 2010. It also provides a review of possible or already implemented management options and how these can help to resolve some of the problems associated with woodfuel production and consumption in the Congo Basin.
