The US Forest Service (USFS), through its Office of International Programs, is an implementing partner in CARPE, providing targeted technical and capacity building assistance to improve forest management in the Congo Basin including the DRC. The multiple-use mandate of the USFS in managing National Forests and Grasslands in the United States requires planning which integrates conservation strategies to achieve ecological sustainability as well as resource use opportunities to contribute to economic and social sustainability. The USFS has focused on land management planning processes in DRC and has assisted CARPE in planning processes and guides for the three different use zones: protected areas, community based natural resource management zones, and extractive resource zones. In DRC, such zones generally correspond to at least two kinds of forest described in DRC’s 2002 Forest Code. However, community based natural resource management zones (community forests) have not yet been explicitly defined in the DRC Forest Code or implementing regulations (arrêtés) but standards and guidelines are forthcoming.
