and enforce legislation for nature conservation and other sustainable development policies, and lack of appropriate land use planning. Given current environmental and development trends, the opportunity to make a lasting impact at the basin scale is likely to disappear in 10 to 20 years. Deforestation rates are still low in the Congo Basin, but. The Congo Basin (also called Cuvette Centrale) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is probably the last continental-scale sedimentary basin that is still poorly known in terms of.
In the heart of the Congo Basin, the world’s second largest tropical rain forest after the Amazon Basin, the Congo offers the greatest river journey in the world. Even better according to shipping professionals and veteran tourists than the Amazon, of which the Congo was once a part of a long long time ago when the continents were linked. Flood situation has been improving for the last couple of days in the region as water declining continues in many rivers in the Ganges basin.
