Support for protected areas co-management and transboundary collaboration
Within the context of increased community participation and governance, PAPFor provides support to CFZ in Guinea and the FDA in Liberia, both government agencies in charge of managing Ziama and Wologizi-Wonegizi, using different approaches. The programme offers capacity-building opportunities through training in law enforcement techniques and management tools, such as SMART software and IMET (Integrated
Management Effectiveness Tool) to enable close monitoring of management effectiveness and tracking of threats, law enforcement and biomonitoring.
Other actions are assessing social impacts of the protected areas and support for field and office equipment and transboundary patrol implementation and coordination, and in some cases, infrastructure.
