About Us: Overview, Key Figures, Highlights

The Congo Basin Forest Partnership (CBFP) was launched by former US Secretary of State Colin Powell at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in 2002 as a non-binding partnership registered with the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development. It brings together about 128 partners, including African countries, donor countries and donors, international organizations, NGOs, representatives of research institutions and the private sector.


The CBFP works closely with the Central African Forest Commission (COMIFAC), the regional body responsible for the orientation and harmonization of forest and environmental policies, in the interest of promoting the conservation and sustainable management of the forest ecosystems of the Congo Basin.


The CBFP was initially facilitated by the United States from 2003 to 2004, France from 2005 to 2007, Germany from 2008 to 2010, Canada from 2010 to 2012, the United States from 2013 to 2015, the European Union from 2016 to 2017, Belgium from 2018 to 2019 and Germany from 2020 to 2023. Co-facilitation is provided by France and Gabon for the period 2023 to 2025. Partnership members meet once a year to coordinate their priority activities, propose actions on emerging issues and share information with partners and networks active in the region.
