Resources

The Ebony Project is a partnership where business, communities, and researchers work together to protect a valuable timber species, reforest degraded land, and improve rural livelihoods. It was launched in 2016 in partnership with The Congo Basin Institute (CBI). The project conducts research to better understand the ecology of African ebony (Diospyros crassiflora Hiern), enhances ebony stocks through community driven planting, and provides native fruit trees to participating communities. From its inception, the project has been designed as a pilot for larger-scale rainforest restoration efforts for the Congo Basin.

Annual Progress Reports

Each year, the project teams produces an annual report to document its successes and challenges in the previous year and to state its assumptions moving forward. Reports are intended to be an honest assessment of the state of the project at each given moment it time.
