Program 7: Forestation and deforestation (p. 120): In order to reach the sequestration potential estimated at first glance at 30 Gt by 2030, the DRC shall implement an ambitious deforestation / reforestation programme affecting approximately 13 million ha, including: a portion for afforestation in the marginal zones (savannahs); another for reforestation of degraded forests.
Programme 8: Identification of “protected Forests” and gradual transfer of their management to local communities (p. 121): The DRC wants to implement community management of ‘protected Forests’ gradually in order to involve and empower local communities to manage their forest heritage. This programme therefore aims to: Target and define potential areas within the framework of territorial ‘zoning’; Support local communities in implementing suitable organizations to manage these areas.
Programme 10: Increased output and value added for small farmer commercial agriculture, based on the aggregation of techniques with low impacts on forests, including agroforestry (p. 122)
Programme 11: Controlled development of intensive farming (including export), through the rehabilitation of old and new plantations / savannah ranches (p. 122): To reduce the potential impact of intensive farming on the forest major actions can be taken: Orienting investors toward old plantations located in the forest in order to rehabilitate them (between 1.4 and 1.6 million ha)
Programme 12: Decreased demand for firewood and increased supply through afforestation / sustainable reforestation, within the framework of a coherent national energy strategy (p. 123): Afforestation and reforestation programmes intended to provide firewood to urban populations in a sustainable manner can be completed by this programme, whose aim is to reduce demand, mainly by providing electricity to the entire territory, meeting up to 60% of needs, since the Government provides for it in its equipment programmes to be completed by 2030.
