The objective of this report is to succinctly present, and examine the organization, activities, and cooperating partners of the Central African Forest Commission (COMIFAC), to increase understanding within the US government (USG) and partners, to better orient and design engagement and partnership with COMIFAC in future activities. The report will start by examining COMIFAC’s related institutions, the COMIFAC Executive Secretariat, member countries, working groups, and sub-regional partner organizations. Through this examination, the mandate, organizational structure, and institutional capacity of COMIFAC can be better understood. Next the report will summarize the activities of the wide array of partners that work with and through COMIFAC. This includes international government assistance, NGOs, development bank projects and programs, and research institutions. By understanding who the cooperating partners are, the reader can assess gaps and needs of COMIFAC relative to their own objectives and anticipated results. The report will then present the activities of USG organizations that work with COMIFAC, primarily the US Forest Service (USFS) through funding from the US Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Central African Regional Program for the Environment (CARPE). The report will discuss the evolution of the support and workplan, and present plans for FY2011 cooperation. Lastly, the report will make recommendations to future USG engagement (including specifics for USAID/CARPE and USFS) with COMIFAC based on the presented information and analysis.
