Cercle d’Appui à la Gestion Durable des Forêts
Democratic Republic of Congo
Summary Cercle d’Appui à la Gestion Durable des Forêts (CAGDF) is a civil society organisation that was founded in 2010 to focus on issues of forest governance and community rights, particularly in relation to independent monitoring. CAGDF was founded within the context of a project focused on establishing a formal Independent Observer (IO) to monitor implementation of the national forest code in the Republic of Congo. In order to effectively establish itself, the organisation benefited from support from two international non-governmental organisations in particular: Resource Extraction Monitoring (REM) and Forests Monitor (FM).
