Community forestry: Future Concession of Local Community Forests “CFCL KISIMBOSA CHAMAKASA”

Community forestry project that aims to promote and secure the socio-economic and cultural rights of the indigenous Pygmy peoples of Kisimbosa Chamakasa.

An initiative of PIDP SHIRIKA LA BAMBUTI

Overview of the project

Since 2009, the PIDP SHIRIKA LA BAMBUTI has been supporting Pygmy indigenous peoples in 2 localities, Bananingi and Bafuna Bakano, in the Bakano Sector in Walikale Territory. It all began with the dissemination of the forestry code, which was followed by advocacy for the acquisition in the DRC of Decree No. 018 of 02 August 2014 setting out the modalities for allocating forest concessions to local communities and Ministerial Decree No. 025/CAB/MIN/ECN-DD/CI/00/RBM/2016 of 09 February 2016 laying down specific provisions relating to the management and exploitation of local communities’ forest concessions.

Thus, the PIPD has supported indigenous peoples in several areas: in participatory mapping of rights, in community structuring in different bodies according to the law, in the multi-resource inventory, in socio-economic study, in agricultural intensification, in the preparation of the application file that has already been submitted to the Provincial authority adopted by the Council of Ministers and finally, soon, in the finalization of the simple management of the simple plan and zoning.
