CIFOR in Central Africa

CIFOR in Central Africa

Central Africa hosts the second largest rainforest in the world: the Congo Basin. This unique ecosystem is home to endangered gorillas, okapis, chimpanzees, bonobos and forest elephants, as well as thousands of species of birds and trees. It also supports the livelihoods of over 60 million people and stores huge amounts of carbon. This is why CIFOR’s work in the subregion is so important: it addresses research, policy and technical gaps to promote the sustainable management of the Congo Basin forests, and to ensure that their vast resources contribute to the well-being of all.
