Boundaries of Forest Titles, Democratic Republic of Congo, 1987-2013
This polygon dataset represents the boundaries of forest titles of the Democratic Republic of Congo, recorded up until 2013. These securities are dedicated to the exploitation of timber and used to create concession contracts.
The original map data was produced by the Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation and Tourism (MECNT) with support from the World Resources Institute (WRI) . These have been used by the Project WRI / CARPE to produce the Interactive Forest Atlas of the Democratic Republic of Congo: 1.0. These data come from the forest title conversion project with validation limits by logging companies.
