Greenpeace is calling on Chirac and leaders of other donor countries to stop promoting industrial logging in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Following the protest, President Chirac announced his support to maintain the moratorium on industrial logging in the Democratic Republic of Congo until the DRC government is able to fully manage its forests. Beyond environmental impacts, logging in this region exacerbates poverty and leads to social conflicts.
