          Restoring urban forests will not only safeguard their ecosystem but also the inhabitants of the forests

              This is commendable of the government of DRC. The country experiences lots of rainfall so afforestation is very possible

                There is still hope that corrections can be made where activities like mining have left destruction,once we identify the damage we come up with ways of restoring.

                  That's a commendable initiative by the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) to enhance environmental resilience.
