Rangers retire after decades of service
In a ceremony that took place in Mokoto, the head of ICCNs Human Resources Division, the Park Director and his Deputy bid farewell to nine rangers who retire after decades of service.
In the last 2 years a considerable effort has been made to improve the human resources management of Salonga National Park. This included the identification of rangers who have reached retirement age. In the Congolese civil service, retirement is not clearly regulated. The SNP Management Unit has now made possible for nine rangers to retire. All of them are well over 70 years old. This is the first wave of retirements and the next one will follow. The vacated positions are now free for young rangers who can be enrolled in the civil service.
Continuous improvement in Salonga’s management efficiency
Salonga National Park completed its Management Effectiveness Assessment (IMET) for 2018 and it shows significant improvements.
