USAID: On the conclusion of the CARPE III US Partners meeting


Following on the heels of the CARPE III  Strategic Planning Workshop the week of December 9-13,  USAID Bureau for Africa organised  a DC CARPE Partners meeting January 27-28, 2014.




♦ CARPE III plans shared among CAFEC and EMEMPS implementing partners

♦ FWS grants programs coordinated with CARPE III

♦ US facilitation of Congo Basin Forest Partnership coordinated with CARPE III

♦ Partnerships initiated and enhanced through formal and non-formal networking

♦ USAID informed by participant perspectives on CARPE implementation




Meeting focus is on the work of USAID/CARPE implementing partners but participation open also to others active in the region wishing to better understand the CARPE program. CARPE partners outside the CARPE core funding (e.g. FWS, CBFP, Slivacabon, INCEF, BCI, IUCN and ABCG (Day2) will focus on what they are doing and how their activities/programs relate to and complement CARPE’s programs in Central Africa. This will help CARPE in better coordination, leveraging resources and avoid any potential duplication, and share implementation experiences. Tuesday, January 28 afternoon will focus on discussion of technical issues such as wildlife trade, Concessions, GCC, gender, and communications.

"For over three decades, the Montreal Protocol has done much more than shrink the ozone hole; it has shown us how environmental governance can respond to science, and how countries can come together to address a shared vulnerability. I call for that same spirit of common cause and, especially, greater leadership as we strive to implement the Paris Agreement on climate change and mobilize the ambitious climate action we so urgently need at this time." UN Secretary-General António Guterres
