Kongo-Central Programme

With the support of the Swedish Cooperation, WWF-DRC works to establish a green alliance with local communities through the implementation of a landscape-scale intervention in Kongo central

The Kongo Central programme aims to contribute to the maintenance of the ecological integrity of the Luki Biosphere Reserve and the Mangrove Marine Park by increasing economic opportunities and benefits of rural communities.

WWF's work

Due to its large population and close economic ties with Kinshasa, Kongo-Central is one of the provinces where human impact on the natural environment is highest. Reconciling development objectives and the protection of natural resources is crucial and urgent.


WWF’s work in Kongo central (formerly known as Bas-Congo) during twenty years suggests that local people are not a problem or an obstacle to conservation, but rather part of the solution.
