Welcome to the Congo Basin Forest Partnership ( CBFP)

Since its creation in 2002, the Congo Basin Forest Partnership (CBFP) has brought together an ever-increasing number of members. Today, nearly 126 partners grouped into 7 colleges work for the conservation of biodiversity, the sustainable management of forest ecosystems in the Congo Basin, the fight against climate change and poverty reduction in Central Africa in the member countries, in accordance with the COMIFAC Convergence Plan and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
More than 500 participants attend its annual Meeting of Parties. No other regional initiative assembles such a diverse and ever-growing number of collaborating actors. A wide variety of partners from a broad spectrum come into dialogue with one another. They work on joint, cross-sectoral and sustainable solutions.
