This report presents the progress of projects and initiatives that promote adaptation and REDD+ in the Congo Basin region and analyses opportunities for synergies or trade-offs between the two strategies.
Using research from southeast Cameroon, this paper describes a participatory and collaborative process for formalising qualitative data and explains how these results can provide input to a social simulation model. Insights to provide in better understanding decision-making in the region are also explained.
This paper describes a participatory methodology used to assess the current vulnerability of local communities in the Congo Basinon the COBAM project. Vulnerability has been studied through the lenses of different dimensions: system and exposure units, dynamic processes, multiple threats, differential exposure, social capital and collective action. The purpose of this framework is to grasp the socio-ecological dynamics in the system over the past decades, in order to identify future actions for reducing vulnerability and to enhance adaptive capacity.
The Tri-National de la Sangha (TNS) landscape came into being during a summit of heads of state and Governments of the Economic Community of Central African States in 1999. This note is background for a case in the COBMA project.
The study of the current vulnerability of villages in the Tri-National de la Sangha Landscape, Cameroon, creates the basis to evaluate future vulnerability and identify possible adaptation strategies that could be synergistic with mitigation efforts in the Congo region.
