Following accusations made by a community forest monitor of illegal logging in CFAD Hua Jia at La Remboué, specifically in Roungoula, Bangando and Padouk villages, an external independent monitoring mission was carried out by the NGO Brainforest from 17-23 January 2019, with the overall objective of verifying the compliance of activities with current legislation.

The actions carried out during this mission, in particular documentary analyses and site visits, made it possible to identify issues concerning timber recovery procedures and the traceability of the exploited timber in these areas designated for agriculture, as well as with contracts between farmers and loggers.

This activity has taken place with the support of the CV4C project.
