China-Africa forest trade and investment: an overview with analysis for Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique and Uganda

Andreas Wilkes editor

Country report, 68 pages

China's investment and trade in Africa's natural resource sectors have significant implications for Africa's forests. Many investments are in forest areas. Some directly engage in logging while others, such as mining, infrastructure and agribusiness, affect forests and rural livelihoods. This report provides an overview of trends, evidence and issues related to the impacts on forests of Chinese investments in four African countries: Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique and Uganda. It explains Chinese overseas investment policies and presents data on trends in forest-related trade and investment in these four countries. It highlights issues of concern and opportunities for engaging with Chinese and African stakeholders to support improved forest governance.
