Workshop on Gender and Indigenous Women's Rights in the Democratic Republic of Congo: Protecting Rights to Land and Forests

Export citation

Forest management has been a major concern for governments since 1992, with the aim of better conserving forests to provide livelihoods for local communities and Indigenous peoples. Integral to this is the legal recognition of the rights of local communities and Indigenous peoples to access, manage and, in some cases, collectively own forest resources.
