Update from the Field

August 20, 2014


RFUK staffer Georges-Thierry Handja (pictured centre) has just finished training sixteen Cameroonians who will join our team as we start to map areas of rainforest under imminent threat from palm oil companies, logging and road-building.

Over the next five years, we aim to digitally map an area of Congo Basin rainforest 30 times the size of Greater London, showing where local communities live, which areas they are protecting, and information about their access to health care, jobs and schools.
