Emerging evidence and impact of IFM on policy and practice of forestry in Congo Basin: Illusion or Reality?
  • Variable impacts and anecdotal– vary widely depending on local, sectorial, regional and historical contexts
  • Combatting illegal logging seen as international response – no long term national level impacts without political will and buy in
  • Without support of all main stakeholders (including progressive elements in the forest sector) it is unlikely that IFM as currently practiced will lead to substantial policy level reform
