Caption: Logging truck in the Congo Basin. The timber industry is a major employer in the region, but commercial logging devastates forest ecosystems and displaces those living there. Along with slash-and-burn agriculture, it causes much of the deforestation in this region. Photographed in the south-western region of the Central African Republic.
