Gabon - Strengthening Capacity for Managing National Parks and Biodiversity Project (English)

By working in national parks and surrounding buffer zones and production landscapes the Gabon Strengthening Capacity for Managing National Parks and Biodiversity Project adopts an integrated approach to biodiversity conservation. Implementation of concrete on-the-ground activities will strengthen organizational and operational capacities of national parks and wildlife authorities. There are four project components. Component 1 strengthens Institutions of National Agency of National Parks. Component 2 expands Gabon's protected area coverage Component 3 provides direct support to selected national parks. Component 4 finances wildlife management in production landscapes (the Loango, Mukalaba and Mayumba national parks and their buffer zones, and the buffer zones of Lopt and Bateke).
