Our national partners are the leading forest monitoring actors in their countries.
The consortium includes national organisations involved in mandated (CAGDF and OGF) and external independent (Brainforest, CED, CIEDD and FODER) monitoring in the Congo Basin, working alongside two internationally respected and neutral organisations (CIDT and WRI) with the ability to broker linkages between monitors and those they seek to influence, particularly government and private sector.
Having only two international organisations in this consortium ensures that the majority of financial resources are directed towards national co-applicants. The national co-applicants are the leading forest monitoring actors in their countries with considerable experience and technical expertise in monitoring FLEGT, REDD+ and land use changes. They hold strategically important positions within national Civil Society networks, making them ideal conduits for capacity strengthening of other NSAs.
