Experts’ Background Report on Illegal Exploitation and Trade in Natural Resources Benefiting Organized Criminal Groups and Recommendations on MONUSCO’s Role in Fostering Stability and Peace in Eastern DR Congo
United Nations Environment Programme, Mission des Nations Unies en République Démocratique du Congo

The report examines the role of transnational environmental crime as one of several key factors fuelling the protracted conflict cycle in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). It makes recommendations on how the Mission des Nations Unies en République Démocratique du Congo (MONUSCO), in its forthcoming downsizing  phase, might endeavour to support the Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo to address apparent segments of the Congolese political economy that are linked to transnational environmental crime. The report was reviewed at an experts’ meeting held in Goma, DRC, from 17-18 February 2015.

The Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction: Case Study and Exercise Source Book
United Nations Environment Programme, Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction, Center for Natural Resources and Development

This ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction and climate change adaption (Eco-DRR/CCA) case study booklet is designed as a guided learning resource and supports a problem-based learning approach. The booklet enables masters students of the Eco-DRR course to work independently on the provided case studies and exercises, but it can also be used as a freestanding publication. The case studies are self-explanatory and no further documents are needed. However, where necessary, the lecturer can support the students with introductory explanations and also prepare for a final in-class discussion of each case study. The case study exercises are recommended to make the students apply the knowledge gained throughout lectures and to get to know ecosystem-based adaptation in different geographical regions and ecozones. We also recommend including the case studies and respective exercises throughout teaching the Eco-DRR module, preferably after having taught the first block or more to equip the students with some applied knowledge on the topic.
