IntroductionForest Peoples Programme staff have recently returned from two weeks in the Central African Republic where we were working with the Bayaka Community Union and the World Wildlife Fund in the context of the EU-funded, Government of Central Africa Republic-implemented, and WWF-supported Dzanga Sangha project in which FPP is a partner. The objective of the EU project is to promote and improve local and especially indigenous livelihoods and sustainable development in the Dzanga Special Reserve in the context of increased protection for community rights, along with improved access to health and education services. The project is especially targeting the indigenous population of Bayaka forest huntergatherer communities, and the Sangha Sangha people, now a minority group traditionally based predominately along the rivers of the region. This EU project is one of a number of donor-funded projects implemented by the government, with technical and financial support from WWF, which together enable the Dzanga- Sangha Special Reserve to operate.
Focusing on the the Dzanga-Sangha Protected Area Complex in CAR, this briefing highlights some key issues that need to be addressed to ensure that potential plans for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) are sustainable and are developed in a way that respects human rights.
Ce document met en lumière certaines des principales questions qui doivent être réglées pour s'assurer que la planification de la REDD se fasse de façon durable et dans le respect des droits humains dans le Complexe d'aires protégées de Dzanga-Sangha (CAPD).

We are completely neglected and forgotten. Even our wives do not have access to midwives. They are permanently exposed to death because of lack of care during their pregnancy and deliveries. This came with the so-called modern life into which we were dragged. It did not exist when we were living in our natural environment. We had so many plants for such problems...
