Abstract: The Central African Forests Commission (COMIFAC) and its partners (OFAC, USAID, EC-JRC, OSFAC, WWF, WRI, WCS, GOFC-GOLD, START, UN-FAO) organized an international conference on "Monitoring of Carbon stocks and fluxes in the Congo Basin" in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, 2-4 February 2010. The conference brought together leading international specialists to discuss approaches for quantifying stocks and flows of carbon in tropical forests of the Congo Basin. The conference provided a unique opportunity to assess the status and capacity to monitor forests in the Congo Basin and to identify key technical issues related to carbon monitoring in the region. The report summarizes key points from the plenary sessions and working groups, and presents recommendations for near and medium term actions. In addition to supporting the REDD process, the findings presented here apply as well for advancing regional capacity for land cover and land use monitoring in general (e.g., for land use planning, agricultural monitoring, conservation of biodiversity)
