Congo Basin Forest Partnership (CBFP)

The Congo Basin Forest Partnership is an association of over 70 governments, institutions, organizations and private sector partners working to coordinate efforts to sustain the forest resources of the Congo Basin.

The CBFP was launched as a multi-stakeholder partnership at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa. The partnership aims to enhance natural resource management and improve the standard of living in the Congo Basin. The CBFP recognizes the Central Africa Forest Commission (COMIFAC) as the central policy and decision-making body for conservation and management of Central African forests.

The CBFP is led on a voluntary basis by one of its members, who acts as a Facilitator in promoting effective dialogue and cooperation within the Partnership. CBFP is currently facilitated by the Government of Germany from 2020 – 2022. Members of the partnership meet biannually to coordinate priority activities, to propose action on emerging issues and to share information with partners and networks active in the region.
