A Special Intervention Fund granted by the FAPBM to secure the Nosivolo protected area

The FAPBM has granted a Special Intervention Fund to the Nosivolo protected area to restore order to the management of this site through the operationalisation of a mixed control brigade and the revitalisation and securing of the Village Conservation Associations. This protected area, managed by the Cercle d'Etude Multidisciplinaire sur l'Environnement et la Santé (CEMES) is a victim of gold panning and illegal fishing which threaten its core area. Those in charge on the spot are also the target of various threats. 

The fund granted by the Foundation will enable :

  • the organization and implementation of the mission of control and restoration of order of the joint control brigade;
  • the implementation of environmental education activities on the legislation governing PA and natural resources, as well as the role of hard cores and ecosystem services will be carried out;
  • the revitalisation and operationalisation of the village control and management committee. 

The Special Intervention Fund is one of the 3 types of funding allocated by the FAPBM and is intended to enable a protected area to face a specific threat that endangers its ecological integrity.
