Central Africa is home to the second largest rainforest in the world: the Congo Basin, which sustains the livelihoods for millions of people in the region. This vast, rich ecosystem is one of the world’s most important biodiversity hotspots, and it provides food, wood, meat, water and medicines for local communities and helps regulate the climate on a global scale.

But the Congo Basin is under threat from deforestation and the climate crisis. So, how can we keep it healthy by using the latest data to make smart and informed decisions? Join experts, practitioners and policymakers working in forest information management in Central Africa and learn how we can help protect these globally valuable ecosystems.
