This short film demonstrates the difficult conditions of the fight to protect African Grey Parrots in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The governor, recognizing that Maniema Province is an important hub for the illegal trade, declared all commerce of grey parrots in the Province illegal indefinitely. The airport in this Province is closed to parrot transport, but not in Kisangani in Tshopo Province... The result: thousands of parrots are shipped downstream from Maniema on the Congo River to Kisangani each month. Many of them die, but the profit is worth it. And as long as the markets exist, field conservationists will never be able to stop this trade. For more information, visit www.bonoboincongo.com or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org

French/Nat At the same time some of the states involved in the war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo signed up to a peace agreement last Saturday, rebels were advancing the diamond capital of Mbuji- Mayi. Some reports say the rebels may have taken the southern city of Kabinda, an important staging-post on the road to Mjubi-Mayi, only 100 kilometers away. APTN visited the town and discovered that diamond traders fear their business may collapse. Diamond traders are nervously watching rebel movements towards their city and fear that even a ceasefire won't stop the advance of the rebels. They say the market is jittery, with nervous trading pushing up prices. Mbuji-Mayi - the capital of the Kasai province - is heavily defended by Zimbabwean troops who back the govern...

The Democratic Republic of Congo, the second largest country in Africa, is a country which is eager to control its own destiny. Itineris takes you to Kivu, on the borders of Rwanda and Burundi, and on the shores of the lake which bears the same name. The province has been greatly affected by a series of wars, and the laws of the strongest and most violent still hold sway, but Kivu is developing. The region's future seems to lie in the agricultural sector. In the fabulous earth of the great lakes region grow some of the best young coffee plants in the world. The Trade for Development Centre, a programme of the Belgian Development Agency which supports fair and sustainable trade, together with the Belgian NGOs, Oxfam-Solidarité and Oxfam-Wereldwinkels, provides support to the coffee-growing ...

An estimated 83 % of people in the Congo Basin rely on charcoal and firewood for their cooking and energy needs. The trade is a major contributor to deforestation - a driver of climate change - and at the same time, those involved are vulnerable to changes in the climate. CIFOR is examining how people in the charcoal trade, and the natural resource itself, are affected by climate change. This video introduces some of the people making a living from the trade in Cameroon. Copyright permission for music "Ossone" by Cameroonian artist Sally Nyolo obtained from Skycap Music.

Matadi, port city, extreme western Democratic Republic of the Congo. It lies along the Congo River opposite the town of Vivi. Matadi is situated 93 miles (150 km) upstream from the Atlantic port of Banana and is the farthest point up the river reached by oceangoing ships; cataracts prevent navigation farther upstream. It is the nation's principal port, with one of the largest harbours in central Africa and a mile-long waterfront that is cut in granite. Located at the base of the Cristal Mountains, the city takes its name from the Kikongo word for stone. In 1879 the British-American explorer Henry (later Sir Henry) Morton Stanley opened a trading station there. Between 1890 and 1908 the first Congo railroad was built from Matadi past the cataract region to Léopoldville (now Kinshasa), the n...
A chair, a table, an umbrella and a pile of money is all that is needed for currency brokers in the Democratic Republic of Congo who set up shop on sidewalks of the capital Kinshasa and other cities. Born out of the chaos of civil unrest, the sidewalk currency broker has become a ubiquitous and legal element of the country's under-banked economy. A natural sound version of an AFPTV report.
Funerals are usually very sombre occasions but in the Democratic Republic of Congo some comedians are bringing humour to the sad events. Les Papiers Mouchoirs are a three-man comedy troupe who appear around Kinshasa, often at funerals. Mourners say the laughter "returns some of the joy they have lost" with the death of a loved one.
Public Eye has investigated some very lucrative contracts that relate to Gunvor’s business in the Republic of Congo. It is a story emblematic of problems that plague the trading sector. Gunvor’s adventures in Congo show us once more the need for regulation of the trading sector. Andreas Missbach, Head of Commodities and a member of the Governing Board at Public Eye, explains why Switzerland should take action. A story in six acts: http://gunvorincongo.publiceye.ch
Gold, Silver & Slaves looks at how the business of slavery was a case of slave-trading by complicit Africans, fuelled by the greed of African kings. This is the untold story of the greatest slaving nation in history. Up till now, Britain’s place in the history of slavery has been as the country that abolished the international slave trade. Britain’s Slave Trade reveals the shameful truth behind this liberal facade, showing how the economic, social and cultural life of Britain would have been unrecognisable without slavery. Britain’s Slave Trade explains how a middling European power transformed itself into the ruler of the waves, tracing the impact this had on the British way of life and taking in the Industrial Revolution, the beginnings of Empire and the birth of modern racism along th...

You'll learn how the Dutch invented stuff like joint stock corporations, maritime insurance, and futures trading. Basically, how the Dutch East India Company crashed th...
