The Congo Basin Program's implementation is coordinated by Form international, a Dutch consultancy firm specialised in sustainable forest management and certification since 1993. Form has extensive experience in West- and Central Africa with supporting front running companies in the process towards legality and FSC certification of their forest concessions, developing forest management plans, and providing Reduced Impact Logging training courses. In addition, Form international provides technical advice to Form Ghana concerning plantation management.
Director Paul Hol: 'Form is proud to be coordinator of this excellent program and will bring in their long term expertise with sustainable forest management in the region. Form’s expert team is highly committed to realise the goals of this program together with all partners involved.'
From 2011 until 2013 there was a regional coordinator for the CBP; first one based in Gabon and later one based in Cameroon. For 2014 and 2015, all coordination activities will be done by Form.
