The CAR forms a backbone separating the Lake Chad basin from the Congo basin. The altitude of 3/4 of the country is between 400 and 800m above sea-level.
For the development and composition of the vegetation, rainfall is the most important climatic factor, both in terms of annual volume and its distribution during the year. North CAR remains an area of rich pastures, attracting a growing number of cattle.
