Why?

  • The Congo and its tributaries are a vital resource for all the countries of the Congo Basin
  • The Basin holds 8% of the world’s forest-based carbon, so it also has a key role to play in helping to prevent global warming
  • The Blue Fund for the Congo Basin is a major sustainable development initiative designed to reduce the pressure to exploit the forests of the Congo Basin and thus mitigate the impact of global warming by promoting alternative economic development using the resources of the Congo River and its tributaries

The purpose of the Blue Fund for the Congo Basin is to generate sustainable economic development for the peoples of the region while reducing deforestation – for the Congo Basin countries, but also a global priority as a carbon sink.
