West & Central Africa
Expansive Forests, Vital Rural Economies
What's at Stake
West and Central Africa have strong rural economies set within some of the world's largest forest expanses. The Congo Basin spans eight countries, contains the world's second largest contiguous forest, and boasts abundant biodiversity and natural resources. It also provides food, water, and shelter to some 75 million people.
Sustainable agriculture and community forestry are powerful strategies for conserving the abundance of natural resources in West and Central Africa. In addition to our work to conserve the forests of the Congo Basin, we partner with farming communities to build climate-resilient, sustainable agriculture landscapes.

The world's second largest tropical rainforest is home to endangered gorillas. Community forestry is essential to the future of this region.
Just imagine: what if you turned on your faucet and no water came out? Everyone cares about clean water. Not everyone's taking action.
