Please describe the steps you are willing to take in the medium term. D.R. Congo is the Africa’s richest country , in terms of natural resources and potentialities, not only for its biodiversity and the raining forest, but for its mining resources as well. The main productions from Congolese mines are : copper and its associated metals (cobalt, uranium, zinc, lead); tin and its associated metals too (wolfram or tungsten, molybdenum, chromium, quartz, topaz, fluorite); gold, diamond and crude oil. The hydroelectric potential of the DR Congo is estimated up to 774 000 GWH, e.g.35% of the entire continent, or 8% of the whole world potential. Actually, the country is recovering from 40 years of wars, rebellions and mismanagement since the Independence Day in 1960. With the resumption of the cycle of political elections since 2006 (the second term is just running this November 2011) a modern and reliable state will take place in Congo and, consequently, in a medium term, a lot of projects will spring in all the economical sectors (mines, agriculture, energy, etc.) , and help implementing the compensation and offset schemes in the field of Nature Conservation policy.
