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.

This paper discusses fiscal surveillance criteria for the countries of the Central African Monetary and Economic Union (CEMAC), most of which depend heavily on oil exports. At present, the CEMAC's macroeconomic surveillance exercise sets as fiscal target a floor on the basic budgetary balance. This appears inadequate, for at least two reasons. First, fluctuations in oil prices and, hence, oil receipts obscure the underlying fiscal stance. Second, oil resources are limited, which suggests that some of today's oil receipts should be saved to finance future consumption. The paper develops easy-to-calculate indicators that take both aspects into account. A retrospective analysis based on these alternative indicators reveals that in recent years, the CEMAC's surveillance exercise has tended to accommodate stances of fiscal policy that are at odds with sound management of oil wealth.
