Abstract [en]

The Congo basin rainforest of Central Africa is the second largest rainforest of the world after the Amazon of South America. The basin spread across Cameroon, Gabon, Republic of Congo, Central Africa Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo and Equatorial Guinea. Close to 75 million people of the Central African region depend on the basin for their livelihood. Deforestation is a major threat to the Congo basin and the basin is considered to have the highest deforestation rate in Africa. Other threats to the basin include Climate change, the demands for agriculture land, mining, wild live hunting or "bush meat hunting" and population growth. The study answers three main research questions. Firstly, this study looks into the critical environmental threats causing the Congo basin rainforest depletion. Secondly, it focuses on the main contributions of WWF to minimize the basin‟s depletion, and finally look into the policy options of WWF that are in place which will help to foster sustainable forestry. The main conclusion to the study emphasizes that there is an ongoing deforestation in Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo. And also, the other threats leave the basin with serious environmental consequences. It is also observed in the report that it is necessary and important for WWF and other stakeholders to become more committed and take joint actions through dialogue and collaborations to seek solutions to the threats causing the depletion of the rainforest.
