Interim Monitoring Evaluation and Learning (MEL) support for the programme 'Improving Livelihoods and Land Use in the Congo Basin', (2016)
IPE Global | News | June 01, 2016 IST
We have been selected to ensure the programme has a robust Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) framework in order to demonstrate that community forests can be a viable, inclusive model of sustainable forest management. Using our forest governance expertise, we will help build the evidence base on what works and innovate in ways to support community forestry at scale. We have also been requested to undertake a visit to DRC and prepare a scoping paper setting out the potential to establish overarching research framework in DRC – including identification of potential partners and users of the framework on community forestry. The long term impact of the programme will be to reduce poverty and deforestation rates across the Congo Basin. The first phase of this programme is focussed on Community Forestry and will operate in five countries; Republic of Congo (RoC), Central African Republic (CAR), Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Cameroon and Gabon.
