The USAID Central African Program for the Environment (USIAD/CARPE) has funded the technical expertise of the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to work with USAID/CARPE partners on land-use planning in the 12 priority COMIFAC/CBFP landscapes in Central Africa. Specifically USFS was asked to elaborate land-use and management planning guides for the different intervention levels and areas: Landscape Level, Protected Area Macrozone, Extractive Macrozone, and Community Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) Macrozone. These guides were designed for use by implementation partners (NGO, government, communities, and private sector) active on the ground in the 12 priority landscapes. After a testing and elaboration period, the four guides were presented to a broader regional audience through the Central African Forestry Commission (COMIFAC) for their eventual validation and wider use in the sub-region. A workshop was held in Douala April 18-22 to present the guides to COMIFAC partners to train them on the tested methodologies and gain feedback. The participants were presented with the concepts and content contained in each of the four guides, case studies of their use in COMIFAC/CBFP landscapes by partners, and requested to work in small groups to analyze the content and make recommendations for revisions and next steps.
