Background Brazzaville is the capital and and largest city of the Republic of the Congo (also known as Congo-Brazzaville to distinguish it from the Republic of the Congo and is located on the northern side of the Congo River.  The city of Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, lies across the Congo River on the southern side. Together, the combined conurbation of Kinshasa-Brazzaville has about 12 million inhabitants (although significant political and infrastructure challenges prevent the two cities from functioning with any meaningful connection). Over a third of the population of the Republic of Congo lives in the capital, and it is home to 40% of non-agricultural employment. It is also a financial and administrative capital.
