Date : 12th February 2004, Source : ENS



LONDON, UK, February 12, 2004 (ENS) - More than 100 environment, development, and human rights groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) today called on the World Bank to stop plans to carve up the world's second largest remaining rainforest into industrial logging concessions. Internal World Bank documents obtained by the Rainforest Foundation and shared with the DRC groups reveal that the bank envisions a 60 fold increase in DRC timber production.
