About Us

CIFOR conducts global research on forest and climate change, adaptation, redd, indigenous groups, deforestation, gender, dry forests, food security, illegal logging, governance, biodiversity. The Center for International Forestry Research is a nonprofit, global facility dedicated to advancing human wellbeing, environmental conservation and equity. We conduct research that enables more informed and equitable decision making about the use and management of forests in less-developed countries.Our research and expert analysis help policy makers and practitioners shape effective policy, improve the management of tropical forests and address the needs and perspectives of people who depend on forests for their livelihoods.Our multidisciplinary approach considers the underlying drivers of deforestation and degradation which often lie outside the forestry sector: forces such as agriculture, infrastructure development, trade and investment policies and law enforcement.CIFOR focuses on the following research areas:- Enhancing the role of forests in mitigating climate change.- Enhancing the role of forests in adapting to climate change.- Improving livelihoods through smallholder and community forestry.- Managing trade-offs between conservation and development at the landscape scale.- Managing impacts of globalised trade and investment on forests and forest communities.- Sustainably managing tropical production forests.

Comment exploiter durablement le bois d’œuvre en RDC ?

La demande en bois de construction et d’immobilier ne cesse d’augmenter dans toutes les grandes villes de la RDC. Selon nos sources, tous les marchés des agglomérations de la RDC sont approvisionnés par le bois d’œuvre issu de l’exploitation artisanale, pratiquée généralement, sans respect du cycle de la reproduction naturelle des essences coupées : afrormosia, Iroko, padouk, Tola, Mukolongo sont les quelques essences très prisées dans le marché de Kinshasa, Kisangani, Lubumbashi et ailleurs.
