Henceforth, timber extraction to supply cities with fuelwood has become a major cause of deforestation in Central Africa. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, wood accounts for 90% of domestic fuel demand and resources are increasingly over-exploited. This study addresses the issue of securing sustainable fuelwood supplies for the city of Kinshasa through sustainable management of degraded peri-urban forests in village lands, which are the main sources of supply. Management can only become sustainable with the participation of the main players involved, which are the village communities themselves. The question of participation focused primarily on taking all opinions into consideration in decisionmaking. During the design and negotiation phases for the implementation of simple management plans, a novel means of facilitation was developed in the form of an interactive scale model. This is effectively a modular tool for mapping in relief, made up of painted wooden elements that are used to create a miniature scale model of the village and its lands. The kit includes vignettes illustrating the different issues at stake in the negotiations. These models are very easy to use, by the village communities as well as by the project agents, and have not only greatly contributed to the quality and intensity of communication but also stimulated constructive thinking. Their effectiveness is nevertheless dependent on a sound prior understanding of the village community and its internal issues. As well as a simple tool to aid decision-making, it also addresses the question of real knowledge sharing, which is a key factor in the development of coherent, realistic and equitable agreements on management.

L’agriculture itinérante sur brûlis et l’extraction du bois énergie sont les principales causes de dégradation des forêts d’Afrique Centrale. La Régénération Naturelle Assistée (RNA) des jeunes arbres dans les parcelles cultivées, un outil de gestion appliqué avec succès depuis plus de vingt ans au Sahel (Larwanou et al, 2006), a été expérimentée en zone tropicale humide avec des villageois de République Démocratique du Congo (RDC) par le projet européen Makala, depuis 2010. La RNA pourrait constituer une solution viable pour lutter contre la savanisation des dernières forêts galeries du plateau Batéké, tout en pérennisant les productions agricoles et de charbon.
