Community Conservation Strategy and Environmental Education Plan validated
December 3, 2018, several experts and managers from ICCN, WWF and financial and technical partners including the EU, Catholic Relief Service and the German technical Cooperation (GIZ) came together and reviewed the community conservation strategy along with the environmental education and awareness plan of the Salonga National Park.
These two important documents, developed in consultation with local stakeholders and partners throughout 2018, are essential tools for prioritizing actions, coordination and planning between all the partners around Salonga. They outline where investments are being made and how the park and the local population interact.
At the end of the workshop the participants validated both documents. To operationalize the environmental education and awareness plan educational materials will be developed and rolled out in the communites and schools of Salonga. With regards to the community conservation strategy the partners will implement prioritized activities accordingly.
