Democratic Republic Congo Forests Documentation 2006
Lake Tumba (Lac Tumba) was identified by the Congo Basin Forest Partnership (CBFP) as a priority region for conservation. Expansion of logging into remaining areas of intact forests in the Democratic Republic of the Congo will destroy globally critical carbon reserves and impact biodiversity. Beyond environmental impacts, logging in the region exacerbates poverty and leads to social conflicts. Approximately 40 million people in the DRC depend on the rainforest for their basic needs, such as medicine, food or shelter.
