Tropical Forest in Central Africa

The Congo Basin rainforest in Central Africa is the second largest rainforest in the world and most of the 90 million people living in the region depend upon it for their livelihood. Deforestation in the Congo Basin has historically been relatively low, compared to other major rainforest regions, partly because decades of conflict have kept the forests off limits for major industrial exploitation.
