Résilience d´un paysage transfrontalier (Bassin du Congo): tendance de la conservation-développement du Tri-National Sangha

Le paysage forestier tropical du Tri National de la Sangha (TNS) d´une superficie d'environ 44,000 km2 comprend trois secteurs à cheval sur la frontière du Cameroun, Congo et la République Centrafricaine. Il se situe au cœur du Bassin du Congo, lui même le deuxième massif forestier du monde après celui de l´Amazonie. Il est riche en ressources faunique, floristique, halieutique et hydrique. Depuis 2004, une approche de suivi participatif a été développée et mise en œuvre par l´ensemble des partenaires intervenant dans la zone.

Mobilizing knowledge for enhanced governance of trade in wildlife between Africa and China

The value of Africa-China trade has grown almost ten-fold from USD10 billion in 2000 to over USD91 billion in 2009, making China Africa´s largest trading partner. From 2001-2009, Africa exported over 4.7 billion USD worth of timber products to China, fisheries products worth 16 million USD and nearly 23 million USD worth wild medicinal plants. Sustaining the use of Africa´s wild plants and animals at this scale will be a considerable challenge.

The poster will show first project results concerning the actions of CBD-Habitat supported by OceanCare to improve the implementation of the Action Plan for the Western African Manatee on the field in Guinea-Bissau. The support of the Manatee action plan was developed mainly by performing a valorisation of its status in Orango National Park (Guinea-Bissau) as well as by the identification of the impact that fisheries causes to the population, and the identification of critical habitats of the species in order that their protection can be improved by national authorities.

Biodiversity and Development along the Congo River: Bridging more than rivers

Natural and social scientists as well as health experts made their way along a 1000 km stretch of this mighty river, from Kisangani to Bumba and back, to study biodiversity and development issues along the river and in the forests of the Congo basin.

Community based chimpanzee conservation in Guinea Bissau

CHIMBO Foundation’s goal is chimpanzee conservation in West-Africa.
CHIMBO runs a community based conservation program in the south-eastern part of Guinea Bissau: the Boé sector. This is an area with a rich biodiversity with the chimpanzee as its flagship species.
Population growth (100% in 15 years) and the resulting need for more food threatens the rich flora and fauna.
