This report documents research and data on the use of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) from the six countries of the Congo Basin: Cameroon, Central African Republic (CAR), Republic of Congo or Congo-Brazzaville (referred to in the report as Congo-B), Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Gabon, Equatorial Guinea. Those studies that focused exclusively on areas outside of the humidtropical areas were not included – for example, northern Cameroon and southern DRCNTFPs are extremely important to forest communities in terms of basic livelihoods, providing a range of essential resources such as fuelwood, protein, raw materials for household items and medicines. However, much of this value and the livelihood security that NTFPs can provide is little researched and understood.

Through the idealistic eyes of the nameless protagonist, Donato Ndongo portrays the cultural conflicts between Africa and Spain, ancestral worship competing with Catholicism, and tradition giving way to modernity. The backdrop of a nation moving toward a troubled independence parallels the young man’s internal struggle to define his own identity.

"This in-depth investigation of the role that local news media play in Central African conflicts combines theoretical analysis with case studies from nine African countries: Burundi, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, the Republic of Congo, and Rwanda.

Each case study presents a comprehensive discussion of media influences during the various conflicts that have spread in the region, as well as their impact on the peace process. Enriching the exploration, a chapter by Jean-Paul Marthoz (former director of information at Human Rights Watch) focuses on the ways in which the media in the global north cover crises on the African continent."
