    About This Project

    Climate change and human interference threaten to degrade the world’s largest tropical peatland. No detailed assessment of the human uses of the central Congo Basin swamp forest exists. I will couple a remote sensing study on deforestation with an anthropological study in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I will explore how two communities living on the edge of the peatland forest use these resources and the values and cultural significance that they attribute to this unique ecosystem.

    Blast off!
