Commitments towards indigenous communities


ROUGIER commits to:

  • Respect the legal and customary rights of indigenous Baka communities. ROUGIER recognize and respect the indigenous communities’ customary and use rights. The Baka community, as other communities, are fully allowed into the forest concession to collect forest products as stipulated by law. Our ways of operation have been communicated and the Baka communities are aware of our existence and operation.

  • Ongoing communications with indigenous Baka communities. As part of our working procedures, ROUGIER identifies Baka communities living in or around the forest concessions. This is done to enhance communications and consultations. The traditional leaders, opinions and various groups in the communities are consulted in the identification, protection and securing key sites and resources which are important for cultural, religious, ecological or economic perspective.
