A first meeting of experts in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo


On 13 September 2016, the Brazzaville Foundation held a first expert meeting in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo. The objective of this first workshop was to exchange with specialists in environmental issues and representatives of regional organisations on better management of the Congo Basin and its tributaries. The experts and the Foundation agreed, at the end of this meeting, on a common proposal to redesign the bases of the economy of the sub-region, through an innovative exploitation of the renewable resources of the basin waters.
