Resources and synergies development

February 2015

In the scope of the « DynAfFor Project, funded by the FFEM « Structure et dynamique des forêts d’Afrique Centrale : vers des règles d’exploitation du bois intégrant le fonctionnement écologique des populations d’arbres et la variabilité des conditions environnementales »,

CIRAD has subcontracted R&SD in order to perform much needed quality control in rainforest permanent plots.

Two 9ha-plots are located in Yoko, south of Kisangani (Democratic Republic of Congo).

R&SD staff assisted scientists from the University of Kisangani in performing an initial data quality assessment.

Data management and further intellectual property use are addressed in a memorandum of understanding involving CIRAD, UNIKIS and CIFOR.
