General

The Kongo-central Province has been exploited for its natural resources since colonial times, including forest, oil and limestone. This has exposed the region to drought and pollution. It raises the issue of land grabbing, land tenure disputes and the lack of responsibility by private enterprises. In this context, this project aims to promote the rights of local communities affected by the exploitation, focusing in particular to improved access to basic social services. In addition, it aims to contribute to reducing community based conflicts and promoting climate justice.    

Objectives

This project mainly contributes to results within Fair distribution of wealth and access to natural resources. Results will be reported later in the Global Civsam grant period 2016-2020
