Biodiversity International joins Congo Basin institute

An international biodiversity research organisation is the latest body to join a global project to study the Congo Basin, an area that has been called the “lungs of Africa” for its role in carbon capture and oxygen generation.

The Congo Basin Institute was established in June 2015 by the University of California, Los Angeles in the United States and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture. It is based at IITA’s offices in Yaoundé, Cameroon.

Biodiversity International, a not-for-profit science consultancy specialising in producing evidence for agricultural and biodiversity policymaking in developing countries, became a partner in the Congo Basin Institute on 18 August.
