Information submitted by the Democratic Republic of the Congo
 

The Government of the DRC is firmly committed to the international process of reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD-plus), with the objectives of contributing to the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions, reduction of poverty, and the sustainable management of its forest resources, while taking into account the valuation of environmental services. There is a strong willingness to include REDD-plus as part of the country's social and economic development programmes and preparedness for REDD-plus over the period 2010–2012 has started.

The Ministry of the Environment, the Conservation of Nature and of Tourism (MECNT) of the DRC has created the "National Coordination for REDD" (CN-REDD) that is responsible for steering and implementing the REDD-plus process at the national level, including preparation of a national REDD-plus strategy and building and ensuring technical, institutional and legal readiness and capacities. The Government is also working in close collaboration with the UN-REDD Programme, the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility and other organizations on a bilateral basis.

The following information has been submitted  by the DRC as part of sharing their experiences on preparing for REDD-plus implementation in the country.
