Gabon Special Economic Zone, Gabon

Large tree trunks lie on railway carriages in the Gabon Special Economic Zone, a controlled hub for the extraction of timber on a sustainable basis. All timber is traced. Gabon is looking to refocus its national economy to sustainable forestry due to declining oil reserves. The Congo Basin rain forest covers 90% of the country and is known as the 'lungs of Africa'.
