According to Wikipedia (see Tropical Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa entries), Tropical African forest is 18 percent of the world total and covers over 3.6 million square kilometers of land in West, East and Central Africa. Since Sub-Saharan Africa encompasses about 24.3 million square kilometers of area, rainforest take up roughly 14.8 million square kilometers. This figure, however, decreases every year due to severe rainforest deforestation in the region.
