Cartes sur l'état de la biodiversité disponibles pour votre 6RN – Togo

Au début du processus des 6RN, nous vous avons demandé aux Parties à la Convention sur la diversité biologique de doubler le nombre de cartes utilisées de votre 5RN à votre 6RN. Êtes-vous sur la bonne voie pour relever ce défi ? Nous avons de bonnes nouvelles pour vous ! À l'aide du UN Biodiversity Lab et des jeux de données mondiaux disponibles, nous avons créé 18 cartes sur l'état de la biodiversité pour votre pays. Les données contenues dans ces cartes peuvent vous aider à générer des rapports sur les indicateurs clés liés aux ABT 5, 11, 12, 14 et 15.

Equator Initiative Case Study – Village Development Committee of Ando Kpomey

After a devastating bush fire in 1973, the village of Ando Kpomey created a “green belt” buffer around its community that has grown into a 100-hectare forest. A participatory management committee has been established to monitor the forest and its resources and to regulate its use. The community authorizes limited resource extraction to meet livelihood needs and manages revenues generated from the sale of forest-based products. Local women are authorized entry to the community forest to access firewood, significantly reducing the average time needed to forage for cooking fuel.

Equator Initiative Case Study - Pole Pole Foundation

In 1975, Kahuzi-Biega National Park expanded from 60,000 to 600,000 hectares of forest in eastern DRC. The newly-incorporated lowland forest was home to the endangered Eastern Lowland gorilla (Gorilla Beringei graueri), as well as many indigenous Batwa communities. These communities were forcefully relocated by the expansion of the park, depriving them of a source of local livelihoods, food, and cultural heritage. The result was widespread poaching within the park’s boundaries that defied official attempts at enforcement.
