Human Impact on a UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve (Congo Brazzaville): Between Conservation and Sustainable Development
The Dimonika Biosphere Reserve (Congo-Brazzaville) provides a unique array of habitats to species like the Western Lowland Gorilla due to its mix of ocean and mountain traits. Being highly populated, the area is in desperate need of a custom conservation policy. By mapping the use of ecosystem services, we will provide exploratory socio-ecological data which would open up the area for further research and adapt the current management so conservation and sustainable development meet.
