Involve local communities in the conservation of Azagny National Park. This project aims to assist three local communities in establishing women-led local conservation commitees to support the Ivorian Parks Reserve Office in the management and protection of the park's biodiversity. This project also aims to strengthen the capacities of five local civil society organizations to enable them to participate fully in the conservation of the park.

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
