Congo has natural resources the world needs. Its forests count in the fight against global climate change and Congo's farmers could feed all of Africa's population. The Inga hydroelectric site has the potential to light up the entire continent. Congo's incredible natural wealth has the potential to contribute to development in this troubled central African country -- but structural problems, cultural factors, poor governance and predation remain serious challenges.
