This paper seeks to foster knowledge about the impacts of FSC forest certification in the Congo Basin by assessing the level of implementation of some social criteria included into both the current legal framework and the FSC standard as applied in Cameroon. In particular, the paper focuses on the effectiveness and legitimacy of multi-stakeholder dialogue platforms established around FSC certified concessions and their impact on the relationship between communities and logging companies.
