Central African Republic
At a Glance
The Central African Regional Mission serves Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Republic of Congo.
The Congo Basin is not only the second largest tropical rainforest in the world, it serves as a significant carbon sink for greenhouse gases and provides the primary source of food, shelter, and livelihoods for over 80 million people in the region. USAID under the Central Africa Regional Program for the Environment [CARPE] works with governments and local communities to sustainably manage natural resources and preserve the Congo Basin ecosystem.
