Industrial Agriculture Monitor - HubAfter decades of under investment, industrial agriculture is poised to become a driver of economic development across the Congo Basin. Growing regional and global demand for commodities such as oil palm and cacao has spurred investment facilitated by gradually improving transport infrastructure. With this rise comes risks.

This hub aims to provide dynamic map of agriculture concessions in the Congo Basin and timely stories on their impacts.
