Improved protected area management

The PAPFor Programme has supported capacity strengthening of the Protected Area management system in the form of training and provision of materials and equipment for patrols, biomonitoring and law enforcement. Efforts were also concentrated on the integration of communities into the protected area mana-gement approach by recruiting, training and deploying community ecoguards in patrol monitoring activities. Training has been conducted on Integrated Mana-gement Effectiveness Tool, SMART Mobile and camera traps for Biomonitoring.

The transboundary collaboration between Sierra Leone and Liberia based on the Peace Park Agreement between the two countries is very active and sup-ported by the PAPFor Programme.

In keeping with standard Protected Area operational principles, PAPFor sup-ports the review and/or drafting of management and co-management plans for key protected areas in the landscape.
