New report highlights competition between mining and logging interests with REDD+
A new Moabi report highlights that efforts to slow forest loss in the Democratic Republic of the Congo face growing challenges from expanding mining and logging interests. The DRC government’s flagship REDD+ program, Mai-Ndombe, has seen a dramatic increase in artisanal logging permits and new exploitation mining permits have been issued in other REDD+ priority zones. Moabi's report focuses on geographic areas that are critical for reducing forest carbon emissions in DRC: the Mai-Ndombe jurisdictional program, the supply basin of forest resources to Kinshasa, eight REDD+ projects, and the US government-financed CARPE program located in six regions of the DRC.
