She then asserts her expertise to the mandated IFMs in the Republic of Congo and the Democratic Republic from 2010 to 2013, which gives her a general view of the situation of forest governance in the Congo Basin.
Convince that IFM approach is relevant for better governance in the management of natural resources, she co-founded the Field Legality Advisory Group, which now provides capacity building to national civil society organizations while improving techniques and adapting it to new issues such as REDD +.
