Learning from a week in Comoros

To implement the project ‘Transforming civil society’s impact in hotspot conservation’ (funded by CEPF), I have been in Anjouan, Comoros on 03rd – 09th February 2019. This is my first time in Comoros and I learned a lot. These are my key take-home messages:

The results of Madagasikara Voakajy's previous work in the Anjiabe-Beantely complex prompted its members with the Regional Directorate for the Environment, Ecology and Forestry DIANA and the University of Antsiranana to launch the project to create the a New Protected Area to conserve threatened endemic species, habitats and the ecosystem for the benefit of local communities. The establishment of this Protected Area proceeds through several preliminary steps according to the procedure manual for the creation of terrestrial protected areas of the Protected Areas System of Madagascar developed by the Ministry of Trustees in 2008.
