Through these programs, he aims at supporting managers and management bodies to improve the governance and the management of protected areas across Africa. This is done through trainings, tools and guidelines development, small to medium-size projects implementation, fundraising for and funding of PAs, networking, sensitization, information etc. Support to Conservation Trust Funds for African Protected Areas is also part of the objectives of the program. The development of these activities has benefitted from the instrumental support of AfD and FFEM, along with other donors, from the very beginning.
