One year after signing its Letter of Intent, Gabon starts, with CAFI funds, its program to better plan and monitor land use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the land use sector.
Designed to improve the governance of natural resources (forests and land), and reduce the impact of economic activities and demographic dynamics on forests, the programme will focus on hotspots for deforestation and degradation, whilst working to encourage and support more sustainable livelihoods.
High level leadership and improved coordination between priority sectors considered key to success of the Investment Plan.
The forest massif of the northwest Congo Basin, Cameroon has 41.3% forest coverage.
