Support to protected areas
The six PAPFor landscapes contain some 30 protected areas, each of which plays a central role within these landscapes both for biodiversity and the surrounding populations.
PAPFor provides support for the proper management of these protected areas by facilitating the involvement of local communities in their management and providing technical support to the management structures (material, equipment and training...).
Support for biodiversity monitoring (bio-monitoring) and the development of management plans to ensure that each protected area is equipped with a plan developed with the participation of all stakeholders. The programme promotes the use of standardised tools for monitoring management effectiveness such as IMET or METT
