Congo Basin Pledge

At COP26 in Glasgow (2021) twelve donors committed to a collective Congo Basin pledge of at least US$1.5 billion of financing between 2021 and 2025.

It recognises the critical contribution Central Africa’s Congo Basin, the world’s second largest tropical rainforest region, makes to global climate change mitigation and the livelihoods of local communities. The Pledge would support ambitious efforts to protect and maintain the Congo Basin’s forests, peatlands and other critical global carbon stores.

The twelve donors, who are also members of the CBFP Donor College, are Belgium, Bezos Earth Fund, European Union, France, Germany, Japan, Republic of Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom and the United States of America.

Though each donor is responsible for delivering and monitoring their own contribution to the Pledge, donors will report annually on their collective progress towards the Pledge.
