In partnershipwith UNDP, Tropenbos DRC gathered in its meeting room all the top people of Kisangani from the environmentsector to commemorate World Environment Day by debating the contribution of the Integrated Programme for Reducing Emissions fromDeforestation and Forest Degradation in Grande Orientale (PIREDD-O) to the restoration of ecosystems in Tshopo.
Stabilising deforestation and improving the living conditions of forest-dependent communities are central concerns of the Integrated ProgrammeREDD+ Oriental (PIREDD-O).
Education is a process of living, not a preparation for living, according to John Dewey. This lesson makes sense in the context of PIREDD-O: as the programme progresses, the need for training becomes more apparent. In order to meet quality requirements and achieve the expected results, Tropenbos RD Congo regularly builds the capacity of its staff.
