Note: The mining group Rio Tinto was mentioned in this webinar as one of the companies holding titles in protected areas. WRI later found that the boundaries of one of the protected areas (the Okapi Reserve) were incorrect in one geodataset, which accounted for the overlap. Rio Tinto’s holdings in the Democratic Republic of Congo do not encroach upon any protected area.

    In fact, the GIS dataset which represents the Okapi Reserve's boundaries is indeed correct. The issues therefore amount to the Mining Ministry not possessing accurate data, which facilitated in this case, the ceding of a concession which slightly overlaps the RFO.
