Although described as locally common in parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo, the white-naped pigeon is in general a scarce bird with a limited range. The chief threat it faces is the clearance of the forest habitat in which it lives, although it can survive in secondary woodland and has been reported in coffee plantations. The population trend is unknown and the International Union for Conservation of Nature has assessed its conservation status as "near threatened".
