Almost all forest land in the Congo Basin region is officially owned by the state, but much is designated or ‘leased’ as concessions, in the form of logging areas or national parks. The data below shows that the main users of the forest rarely have permanent ownership rights. (Total may add to more than 100% where areas of forest may fall into more than one category).
The infograpahic below displays the breakdown of forest ownership in France , Germany and Norway, three of the largest donor countries of forest sector reforms in the Congo Basin, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It shows the significant contrast between the three European countries, which exhibit high levels of community and/or (mostly local) private ownership of forests, and the DRC where the state retains complete ownership of forests.
