Towards legal and sustainable investments by China in Africa’s forests. Steps taken by Chinese organisations and the path ahead

China’s growing investment and trade in Africa’s natural resource sectors brings with it both challenges and opportunities. IIED’s China- Africa Forest Governance Project is dedicated to improving evidence, capacity and joint action for sustainable Chinese investment in Africa’s forests. This report – one of five country reports from the project – describes the significant progress made by the project in China in key areas: raising awareness among Chinese stakeholders of the need for a legal and sustainable timber trade, improving the evidence base for informed policymaking, increasing dialogue and exchange opportunities between China and Africa, and bringing on board the Chinese private sector to promote sustainable timber trade and other land-use investments.
