Abstract

This paper examines recent developments in the law and policy of the Republic of Congo regarding the environment, energy, and natural resources. It focuses on developments during the year 2020. In this regard, the first part presents the various aspects of international environmental law that have been incorporated into the national legislation and thus enrich it. The second part, on the other hand, deals with national legislation on agriculture, fisheries, land ownership, energy, and natural resources.

Keywords: Republic of Congo, Agriculture and fisheries, Economic Community of Central African States, Land ownership, Natural resources, Energy, Electricity Code, National industrialisation strategy
