Mentoring and Team Building for Long-term Wildlife Conservation Capacity Development: From MENTOR-POP to MENTOR-Bushmeat – Experiences and Impacts. A Side-event for the Seventh CBFP Council Meeting. Date December 17, 2019. Douala, Cameroon

 

 

With changing and emerging threats to Central Africa’s wildlife populations, there is an urgent need to enhance the capacity of Central African conservation leaders to address the threats impacting wildlife and their habitats in the region. Team building and mentoring are increasingly important tools for conservation capacity development.

 

 

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) MENTOR Fellowship Programs use team building and long-term mentoring along with rigorous academic and field learning to develop transdisciplinary teams of emerging African conservation professionals to address threats to wildlife.

 

 

Since 2008, USFWS has supported six MENTOR programs across Africa, with topics ranging from the bushmeat trade in East Africa (MENTOR/BEAN) and chimpanzees in West Africa (MENTOR-PACE) to forests (MENTOR-FOREST), manatees (MENTOR-Manatee), pangolins (MENTOR-POP), and – most recently – fish (MENTOR-Fish) and bushmeat (MENTOR-Bushmeat) in Central Africa. MENTOR program graduates play important roles in government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), such as leading national leading training centers, conducting applied research to inform policy, and implementing innovative wildlife law enforcement efforts.

Upcoming Events

FGF 2020 Applications Now Open !

This calendar is based on information provided by COMIFAC and the Franco-German support office is considered a complementary event schedule to the official calendar posted on COMIFAC's website. (http://www.comifac.org/events). It offers a broad overview of international and regional events that are directly linked to CBFP's objectives: major conferences and meetings, workshops and training sessions and other activities scheduled by CBFP Facilitation and its member organisations. 

Our choice is by no means exhaustive and depends largely on our partners' notice. Every partner organisation is thus welcome to contribute to a rich variety of posted events and to share its schedule with CBFP's Facilitation and the other members! We may also, upon request, forward your input to the COMIFAC webmaster.
