dc.description.abstract This article introduces the CoFFCA program. The challenge for the Congo Basin Forest and Climate Change Adaptation (CoFCCA) project is to increase both public and policymaker awareness of the contribution of forests to the development of livelihood adaptation strategies, and to use forests in a way that does not jeopardize their resilience to future climate impacts. Starting with a national development policy, the project assesses the vulnerability of sectors and areas where forests play a significant role. Next steps include developing vulnerability maps and adaptation strategies regarding forest resources. This implies a constant iterative science policy dialogue among stakeholders in the region. en
