Congo Basin: New Land for Global Agribusiness


With the goal of becoming emerging economies by 2030, the Congo Basin countries are at a crossroads between pursuing economic development and the sustainable management of their forests.

Rainforest Investigations Network Fellow Madeleine Ngeunga will work from her native Cameroon with InfoCongo, a multicountry journalism platform. Her project will combine mapping and data analysis to investigate the illegal practices and legal loopholes that enable land conversion of Congo basin rainforest into industrial plantations.
