Republic of the Congo makes forest sector information public

In the Republic of the Congo, the Ministry of Forest Economy and Sustainable Development made forest sector information available in line with Annex X of the VPA. Managers of the VPA website received and uploaded the collected and scanned documents from the Ministry. The documents include the forest code and its implementing regulations, annual reports of the departmental Forest Economy offices, information on the permit granting process and information on permit holders in the form of currently valid, signed agreements, including the terms and conditions. Much of this information is already available on the VPA FLEGT Congo website in the Annex X section.
