  • Congo: Combating Illegal Coltan Mining | Global 3000

    The Democratic Republic of Congo has rich deposits of gold, diamonds, copper and other minerals that unscrupulous business people have been eager to exploit. Rebel groups have used the sale of raw materials to fund civil war, and Rwandan militias in eastern Congo are capitalizing on the sale of coltan, a crucial raw material in the manufacture of electronic devices.Now, developed countries are stepping up pressure on industry to buy exclusively clean, or conflict-free, raw materials. The United Nations has suggested developing a certification scheme to stamp out the trade of dirty or illegally mined materials.

  • Democratic Republic of the Congo - Forest Surveyor | Global 3000

    The biodiversity of the Congo rainforests is unique. The forests are home to more than 400 mammal species, more than 1,000 bird species, and at least 10,000 plant species. But in the savannas the formerly rich fauna is almost extinct. Now the WWF is sending biologists there to find out just how much biomass and biodiversity still exists in the Congo basin.

    The climate of central Africa is determined in the seemingly endless forests of the Congo Basin. The region in the heart of Africa has been called the earth's second-largest green lung, after the Amazon. Sangha Trinational is a joint conservation and park complex monitored by Cameroon, the Central African Republic and the Republic of Congo. It's an attempt to preserve as much nature as possible for both humans and animals. Patrols pursue poachers and protect tree stocks.
