    Also available in:

    A network of forest reserves and shelterbelts in southeastern Côte d’Ivoire and southwestern Ghana exists, currently serving as a priority landscape that provides the habitat for a number of scattered elephant populations and other endemic or threatened species. As human activities expand and the process of habitat fragmentation accelerates, these animals are severely threatened and face increasing risk of extinction, as they become further isolated from each other. The identified area is an important biodiversity hotspot with an increasing population, in which people engage in subsistence agriculture and depend heavily on bush meat. Human-wildlife conflict has also been on the rise in the area, with little action taken to address the problem. In this context, the project aimed to establish a viable and sustainable Trans-frontier Conservation Area, linking forest reserves and protected areas in and around Bia in Ghana and Diambarakro in Côte d’Ivoire.

    Final Evaluation of Development of the Trans-frontier Conservation Area Linking Forest Reserves and Protected Areas in Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire

    In West Africa, wildlife species including elephants are found in small, isolated forest fragments. As human and economic activities expand, habitat fragmentation accelerates and animals face a growing threat of extinction. In many forest reserves, communities engage in subsistence agriculture and rely on wild animals for meat. Human-wildlife conflict has also been on the rise, with few efforts so far to solve this problem. In this context, the project GCP/RAF/447/GFF sought to construct a conservation corridor between Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana in the Bia-Diambarakro area, a priority landscape for forest conservation and also home to endemic species. Despite the delays and limited tangible results of the project, most stakeholders expressed high levels of satisfaction with the project given achievements despite limited resources.The project managed to engage stakeholders in the issues of conservation and forest and wildlife protection, and the evaluation recommends immediate actions to continue current work as well as plans to scale up activities to preserve important gains achieved.
