The Democratic Republic of Congo has the largest extent of tropical rainforests in Africa, and second largest on earth, covering over 100 million hectares. Deforestation continues to be a major issue with agriculture, fuel wood, logging, mining, and hydroelectric projects posing the greatest threats.

The Democratic Republic of Congo is committed to taking action to reduce deforestation and mitigate climate change. DRC developed a REDD Readiness Preparation Proposal (R-PP), which was signed in March 2010 and an Emission Reductions Program Idea Note (ER-PIN) for the Mai-Ndombe province, which was approved in June 2013.
