Description

This article is written in French.
  • The authors discuss factors affecting peri-urban forests that surround Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo.
  • They argue that as population growth rapidly increases, more and more forest resources in peri-urban areas surrounding Kinshasa are becoming exploited, and that as slash and burn practices make it decreasingly feasible for forests to regenerate, the need for sustainable forest management increases.
  • This paper examines mismanagement of forest resources by local authorities as well as the willingness of local communities to take part in forest management.
  • The authors end by discussing the creation of regulations to support community-based forest management.
