WRI partners with the Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation and Tourism (MECNT) to develop the Interactive Forest Atlas of the Democratic Republic of Congo and to build the capacity of forest stakeholders in remote sensing, GIS, and forest information management. This partnership aims to strengthen forest management and land use planning by bringing all major land use categories onto the same platform.
The Interactive Forest Atlas of the Democratic Republic of Congo is updated as new information becomes available, with periodic publications of the data and database made publicly available through Atlas overview reports, posters, and online and offline mapping applications.
