Taï - Grebo-Krahn - Sapo

The Taï - Grebo-Krahn - Sapo (TGKS) Landscape stretches from south-east Liberia to south-west Côte d’Ivoire. It contains the last large block of intact Guinean forest, of which more than 7,000 km² are protected, including Taï National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The landscape is a mix of natural ecosystems and areas that have been degraded to varying degrees, particularly so on the Ivorian side.
These forested areas contain a very rich biodiversity, with a high level of endemism. PAPFor aims to strengthen ecological connectivity in this landscape, to improve the management of Protected Areas and to support local communities on the path to sustainable development.
