The actual involvement of local communities living at the peripheries of the Park in the governance of natural resources is a top priority for Natural Park Kahuzi-Biega (PNKB). This aspect is particularly emphasized in the implementation of the second phase related to general management plan of the Park (2012 – 2014). The following recommendations, made ​​at the moment of the evaluation of the first phase of the Management Plan, illustrate a concern to preserve and protect for, by and with local communities.

It concerns :
