New scheme launched to tackle illegal logging in DR Congo

In this week's edition: aid agencies say time is running out to help people dying of hunger in east Africa, the WWF launches a new scheme in DR Congo to curb illegal logging; and Jalada's travelling literary festival is on the road in east Africa.


A combination of years of poor rains, failing crops and conflict have triggered a food crisis across east Africa. Millions face starvation and aid agencies are struggling to make an impact.

Also, a new scheme in DR Congo aims to cut back on illegal logging in the country's iconic Virunga national park.

And a collective of African authors are on the road to promote their love of a good book. The Jalada festival travels through five countries offering discussions, performances and master classes on east Africa’s literary offerings.
