Abstract The management of wood energy has become
a major concern for the international
community and is the focus of debates in
Central Africa. The Makala Project, funded by
the EU, fits within this context with the
objective of securing the supply of wood
energy to urban centers. Over the past three
years, various forest resources management
techniques have been designed and an
assessment of the wood energy sector has
been conducted in Kinshasa. Various
technical itineraries have been proposed for
the management of areas dedicated to the
supply of wood energy at various levels, from
the farming plot to the village land, and from
the individual approach to the collective
approach. This article provides a snapshot of
the activities developed by the Makala Project
to improve the management of periurban
forest ecosystems and to secure the supply in
wood energy.
