Tool / Resource

The Forest Transparency Initiative (FTI) is a searchable repository of information on the logging and wood processing concessions and companies operating in forest rich countries of Central Africa. The FTI aims to make relevant, credible and up-to-date information on logging, wood processing and timber trading companies operating in Central Africa, publicly available to decision-makers, consumers and other forest/timber stakeholders through a one-stop shop website. Concession data is currently available for the Republic of Congo. More information will be added as the tool develops.

In partnership with national governments, the World Resources Institute has produced interactive Forest Atlases for six countries in the Congo Basin that provides users with information about land use allocation (forest concessions, protected areas, community forests, mining permits, etc.) within national forest estates.
