National and international development challenges and strategies

Independent since 30 June 1960, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is located in Central Africa. It stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes region and corresponds to most of the Congo River basin. One of the largest rainforests in the world lies in the north of the country. To the east is a mountainous area bordering the large East African rift. The south and centre of the country, areas of wooded savanna, form a mineral-rich plateau. The country extends over 2,345,000 square kilometres and has a population of approximately 66 million. Approximately 70 percent of the population lives in rural areas.
