The Challenges

Climate change

Africa is not responsible for climate change but is its main victim. 17/20 of the most vulnerable countries are African. The continent has experienced 10 times more floods, 3 times more droughts, 4 times more storms, more than 2,000 natural disasters, half a billion people affected, US$50 billion in economic losses and 1 million deaths.

Extreme poverty and vulnerability

The DRC is ranked among the 5 poorest, hungry and most vulnerable countries to climate change. Populations in forest regions are the most isolated with a poverty rate of 75 to 95%, 1% access to electricity, etc. Living from seasonal agriculture and forest harvesting, they bear the full brunt of climatic disturbances which increase their precariousness.

Community deforestation

The DRC is home to 60% of the forests of the Congo Basin, the largest carbon reservoir on the planet. More than 70 million people live from agriculture and forestry. Slash-and-burn agriculture, wood energy and small-scale logging are responsible for more than 80% of deforestation. The country ranks after Brazil in terms of deforestation with more than 1Mha per year.

Loss of customary lands

The law regulates the privatization of land, but millions of peasants no longer have their own land, because of the selling off by traditional authorities of customary land heritage. This reduces community resources and becomes the main source of tension. To compensate for the loss of customary lands, sustainable economic alternatives are needed to empower customary entities.

Lack of funding

The financing needs of the DRC’s climate agenda are estimated at 48 billion US$, but less than 1 billion have been acquired. And unfortunately, a small percentage of the funding mobilized reaches local populations. Hence the increase in poverty and deforestation despite the billions committed.

The solution

Stop & reverse deforestation

More than 100 forest countries committed at COP 26 to halt and reverse deforestation by 2030. Preserving and restoring forests can contribute to the reduction of 6 GtCO2, or 1/4 of the urgent global reductions to achieve the vital objective of 1.5C°, set by the Paris agreement

Greening the rural economy

The DRC holds the most important climatic forest on the planet and the main source of livelihood for 70 million people. To preserve it, we must improve agricultural production methods, provide green energy and develop sustainable community forestry.

Finance by NFTs photo art

NFTs have boosted the contemporary art market. In 2021, they generated 41 billion US$, following the need for buyers to acquire works of art that speak to them intimately. The climate issue and the mystical African cultures will make 3KTC NFTs real rare pearls on the market.
