Notes:
Congo has the natural resources the world needs. Its forests count in the fight against global climate change and its mining sector helps satisfy our addiction to the latest high tech gadgets. Congo's farmers could feed all of Africa's population of over a billion people. The Inga hydroelectric site has the potential to light up the entire continent. These realities are redefining the country's strategic place in a globalised world. Telling a different story about power and nature, this title examines the dynamics of this huge country's forest, mining, land, water and oil sectors in an integrated way. It connects the dots by emphasising resource diversity, interlinkages and the complex nature of these sectors.
