    This report aims at providing
    stakeholders with a good analysis of the potential impacts
    of mining development on the Congo Basin forests. It is one
    of a series of outputs prepared during a two-year exercise
    to analyze and better understand the deforestation dynamics
    in the Basin. It presents the main findings of an analysis
    of the mining potential in the Congo Basin as well as the
    global trends in demand of minerals tries to identify ways

    Congo Basin countries rely more on
    wood-based biomass to meet their energy needs than most
    other countries in the world. Wood fuel production is
    increasing in Congo Basin countries. Urbanization often
    produces a shift from fuel wood to charcoal consumption,
    because charcoal is cheaper and easier to transport and

    techniques, with low transformation efficiencies. Under a

    The Congo Basin represents 70 percent of
    the African continent's forest cover and constitutes a
    large portion of Africa's biodiversity. Agricultural
    development is a central lever to help people out of
    poverty, as well as a key driver of deforestation.
    Forest-friendly agricultural development is a challenge for
    the region. This report describes some ways forest-friendly
    agricultural development can materialize in the Congo Basin.

    Road construction has often been viewed
    as the precursor to deforestation, especially in tropical

    reactive, with attempts to mitigate impacts through physical
    measures, or the establishment of protected areas. These
    approaches often have not been entirely successful,
    especially in areas where economic potential is significant.
    This paper seeks to mitigate such conflicts by proposing a
