Independent evaluation of the CoNGOs: NGOs collaborating for equitable and sustainable community livelihoods in Congo Basin forests project
An independent evaluation was carried out to assess the performance and achievements of the CONGOs project. Its main findings indicated that the project was timely and appropriate, in an area where community forestry still has a low profile; effective in that it secured or initiated the process of securing some 90,000 hectares of community forest land; and sustainable, with clear scope for scaling up community forestry in the Congo Basin.
CoNGOs is an IIED-led UK consortium that aims to achieve improved governance and practice in equitable and sustainable community forestry livelihoods in the Congo Basin.
