CEMAC moving towards an export ban on logs

The CEMAC (Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa) is moving towards an export ban on logs. The Cameroon’s Forestry and Wildlife Ministry validated the decision by all countries of the Congo Basin from January 2022.

The ministers validated the decision establishing the Regional Committee for the Sustainable Industrialization of the Timber Sector in the Congo Basin (Crib) as well as the regulation on the development of forest plantations. 

Ultimately, the sub-region would achieve harmonised forestry taxation. To this end, the ministers recommended to the CEMAC Commission (Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Chad) to draw up guidelines on forestry taxation that countries should incorporate into their national legislation.
