Partcipation AJVC of the 18th CBFP RDP

Civil society contribution project to the discussion on the economy and sustainable forest management within the framework of the 18th CBFP RDP

 

ABSTRACT:

The central theme of the 18th meeting of the parties of the CBFP which deals with the sustainability of the forests of the Congo Basin inevitably raises the question of the interrelation between conservation and economic development.

Principle 4 of the Rio Declaration states, in essence, that to achieve sustainable development, conservation must be an integral part of development and cannot be seen in isolation. So in a context where the sub-region, in search of its emergence, is experiencing renewed investment.

In sectors such as mining, food and agriculture, infrastructure and other large-scale projects, it is imperative to ensure the effective integration of conservation imperatives into these investments.

The question should not only be that of the impact of non-forest sectors on the Congo Basin forests, but also those of the opportunities they offer for the conservation of these forests. The lack of a real strategy to capitalize, pool and synergize the opportunities linked to this integration leads to isolated actions by a few operators with no real impact on the scale of the conservation needs of the Congo Basin.

The civil society of the Congo Basin can, through its plural composition and through its role of alert but also of accompaniment of the various actors concerned, contribute to the establishment of integrated investment frameworks in favor of sustainable forest management, which would be fed by the contributions of non-forestry investments.

Linking these executives to ongoing initiatives such as the blue fund for the Congo Basin, the fund for the green economy in Central Africa, etc. would make it possible to derive even more benefits.
