This report documents research and data on the use of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) from the six countries of the Congo Basin: Cameroon, Central African Republic (CAR), Republic of Congo or Congo-Brazzaville (referred to in the report as Congo-B), Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Gabon, Equatorial Guinea. Those studies that focused exclusively on areas outside of the humidtropical areas were not included – for example, northern Cameroon and southern DRCNTFPs are extremely important to forest communities in terms of basic livelihoods, providing a range of essential resources such as fuelwood, protein, raw materials for household items and medicines. However, much of this value and the livelihood security that NTFPs can provide is little researched and understood.
