On 7 January 2021 BBC reported:
The Congo Basin contains the world's second-largest rainforest, crucial for regulating the world's climate. Inside it, a plan to halt the forest's decline is bearing fruit. Under a revolutionary scheme in DR Congo -- which is home to the majority of the Congo Basin, the world's second-largest rainforest -- the 300 villagers of Nkala were granted 4,100 hectares (16 square miles) of forest in December 2018. This meant, for the first time in their history, the community had the legal right to own and manage the forest they live in. Two years on, early signs suggest that community ownership could become a powerful tool in halting the decline of the Congo Basin rainforest, while alleviating poverty in one of the world's poorest regions. 'This is an enormous opportunity to transform the country,' says Fifi Likunde Mboyo, head of the ministry of environment's community forestry division, the government body managing the scheme. 'It is a break away from the past.'
