About the consultancy

Rainforest Foundation Norway (RFN) is one of Europe’s leading organizations in rainforest protection, with more than twenty years of experience and a wide network of partners in all major rainforest regions. RFN works to preserve rainforests and their ecosystem services, while promoting the rights of Indigenous peoples and other local communities to their traditional lands and resources.

With the aim to speed up action for protection and better management of the most intact forests in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), RFN will lead the establishment of a Facility which will support the establishment of effective, equitable, rights-based management regimes for intact forests. This Facility will focus on creating integrated mosaics of Indigenous/community land tenure and protected areas, recognized and supported in government-endorsed spatial and jurisdictional plans.

It will enable greater engagement by civil society, Indigenous Peoples and local communities in forest management and forest governance, upholding the integrity of forest ecosystems while developing forest economy models.
