The US Forest Service (USFS) International Programs office is an implementing partner in the USAID Central African Regional Program for the Environment (CARPE) providing targeted technical and capacity building assistance aimed at improving forest management in the Congo Basin. The USFS is concentrating efforts on the land management planning processes of the CARPE partners and the host country governments for multiple-use forest management at a large landscape scale. These experiences have allowed the USFS to adapt large scale forest management planning techniques in the US into the creation of a series of land use planning and management guides for CARPE. Guides have been produced for Landscapes, protected areas (PA) and community based natural resource management (CBNRM) zones, and extractive resource zones (ERZ). Following the COMIFAC workshop which presented the four (4) USFS/CARPE guides, the USFS and CARPE participated in the RAPAC working group meeting to train RAPAC staff and partners on the concepts and use of the Landscape and PA guides. As a part of a RAPAC working group meeting held in Douala, Cameroon, the USFS, with funding from CARPE, participated and/or led different elements of the trainings and workshops that took place from July 18-23. There was a training of trainers working session on July 18, the USFS-RAPAC training on July 19-20, and the RAPAC working group workshop which followed from July 21-23 (with RAPAC funding and leadership).
