One of the proposals being put forward by our Federal Government was to borrow a staggering $15 billion to build a canal from the Congo right though the Ubangi
Shari in Central Africa to Lake Chad.
Given Impfondo's close proximity to the Equateur Province in DRC (directly across the Ubangi
River), where monkeypox cases are more frequently reported, it is possible that monkeypox was imported from DRC into Republic of Congo, either through human movements or cross-border transportation of bushmeat (20).
To achieve these objectives, WHRC signed partnership agreements with four regional actors (Bureau Diocesain du Developpement (BDD), Communaute Evangelique de l'Ubangi
, Mongala de Gemena, Jardin Botanique d'Eala and Universite du CEPROMAD) to implement different components of the pilot project in the two pilots areas.

Along the Ubangi
River (a northern tributary of the Congo), the African Dwarf Crocodile (Osteolaemus species) was reputed to be 'kept in enclosed pools and bred for consumption'.
Some relevant genealogical units, such as Kru and, from the Volta-Congo sub-branch, Gur and Ubangi
are, for instance, not included in the sample mainly due to lack of accessible resources.
The former French colony of Ubangi
Shari became the Central African Republic after independence in 1960.
Over 100,000 of those have fled to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), which borders CAR via the Ubangi
