The Forests of the Congo Basin: State of the Forest 2010

The Forests of the Congo Basin: State of the Forest 2010

The design of the 2010 State of the Forest report does not differ fundamentally from that of the 2008 report and relies on indicators decided on collectively by about sixty contributors. Data collection was organized from 2009 to 2010 using national groups consisting of four to ten members, depending on the countries, all of whom worked for public administrations dealing with forest issues. Data collected, covering for the most part 2008 and 2009, was validated during national workshops for public administration officials, environmental NGO representatives, the private sector and development projects. The data served to support the inputs provided by contributors of chapters for the current report, under the supervision of internationally recognized scientific committees. Furthermore, a State of the Forest 2010 sub-regional validation workshop was organized from 29 to 30 March 2011 for about 100 participants working in forest management, comprising representatives from the ten COMIFAC member countries, and several of its partners.
