The World Bank announced early this year that they will support the building of The Inga 3 hydroelecyric dam, Africa’s largest copper producer with $73 million.

The World Bank is funding the “environmental- and social-impact studies for the project on the Congo River. South Africa and Congo agreed to develop the $12 billion dam that would produce about 4,800 megawatts and supply electricity to both nations…” according to Businessweek.com.

Kawtanga is the region with the majority of copper mines and the Congo wants to start construction by October 2015.
