Ecosystem services of the Congo Basin forests




Taking into account population growth, road density, logging concessions and forest fragmentation, the Congo Basin could continue to shrink towards the interior over the next 50 years and may fragment into three blocks. The Congo Basin loses some 1.49 million hectares a year to agriculture, logging, road development, oil exploitation and mining. The annual rate of deforestation has been estimated at an average of 0.425. The Republic of Congo loses at least 7,000 hectares of forest each year to logging for firewood.
