Why take action

The Congo Basin Forest spreads across many countries in Central Africa and provides food, fresh water, shelter and medicine for millions of people and a home to endangered wildlife species. In recent years, scientists have found a large area of peatland that holds carbon and is fighting climate change.

The problem

The Congo Basin Forest is one of the most important places in the world to help reduce the effects of climate change. The rate of deforestation in the Congo Basin Forest has increased at an alarming rate. The inadequate control over the forest sector and increased demands from international markets have created the perfect scenario for agribusiness and industrial logging to expand and exhaust forest habitats. It is a special ecosystem that helps keep our entire planet cool and this is why this forest should matter to us all.
