The GIBEC (Inter-Donor Group for Environment and Climate Change) was welcomed this Tuesday, September 26 in the Luki Biosphere Reserve (Kongo Central Province, DRC)

This visit, which was an opportunity for ERAIFT, WWF and INERA to interact with this panel of financial partners (EU, FAO, AFD, Embassies of Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Great Britain, Canadian representation) began with a descent into the middle of the primary forest - an ecological route which allowed us to admire magnificent (and imposing century-old) specimens of "Kalungi" (Entandrophragma utile) and emblematic species (including Prioria basalmifera) thus offering the delegation an overview of the floristic richness of the Luki Biosphere Reserve (RB Luki). The visit continued with a tour around the assets and challenges specific to this ecological site steeped in history; then continued with a presentation of ecotourism potential, followed by free exchanges with GIBEC around research activities within the reserve (RB Luki being able to position itself in Central Africa among the leading sites in research – action in particular on the crucial themes of preserving Biodiversity and/or the effects of climate change).

ERAIFT thanks its partners (the Sweden Kingdom, the EU and AGRINATURA) for the resources made available for this strategic activity, and the co-organizers (WWF and INERA) for fruitful collaboration.
