Mount Nimba is a nature reserve and world heritage site that spans Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire. It covers significant portions of the Nimba Range, a rich geographical area with unique flora and fauna, including remarkable populations of single-site endemic species, such as viviparous toads, and horseshoe bats.
Population growth and industrial activities on site by locals are putting intense pressure on fauna and flora.
The project will build a more effective network of community-based and women-led organizations that works to conserve natural resources. In addition, the project will directly support the creation and registration of seven local organizations to work around Mount Nimba. IBGRN will also conduct a series of trainings in communication, marketing, advocacy, financial management and project management, as well as in market gardening and livestock farming.
Strategic Direction:4 Build the capacity of local civil society organizations, including Indigenous People’s, women’s and youth groups, to conserve and manage globally important biodiversity
