Abstract:

The Democratic Republic of the Congo's (DR Congo) wealth of natural resources dictate that it should be one of the world's richest countries but it its people are among the poorest. Drawing on the key findings to date of UNEP's ongoing post-conflict environmental assessment of the country, this edition of Nature Inc looks at how the breakdown of government, the collapse of industry and the corresponding unravelling of livelihoods have resulted in severe exploitation of DR Congo's environmental resources and widespread pollution in major mining areas. But there are also many positive signs of recovery: communities are organizing themselves to manage their resources and through the REDD scheme, the country could be compensated to conserve its rainforest -- second in size only to the Amazon. This edition of Nature Inc has been produced by DevTV and One Planet Pictures with the support of the United Nations Environment Programme.
