forests in the Congo Basin region, was launched in London, UK. The Fund will be

Central African Forests Commission (COMIFAC) Action-Plan in ten different
strategic areas aimed at conserving the Congo Basin rainforest.

The partnership involves ten country members of the COMIFAC (Burundi,
Cameroon, Chad, Central African Republic, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo,
Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Sao Tome and Principe, and Rwanda) as well as the UK
and Norway. The UK and Norway are providing US$214 million to the fund and will
