The ENNR Co-Management Committee (CMC)

In 2010, a Co-Management Agreement was signed between the Forestry Development Authority (FDA) and the stakeholder communities in order to jointly manage the East Nimba Nature Reserve through a joint board, called the Co-Management Committee (CMC). The CMC comprises twelve members – six representatives of the local communities and six representatives from the FDA. Both parties share their management responsibilities, with the community representatives leading on community-related operations around ENNR, such as awareness raising, sensitization, human-wildlife conflicts etc., while the FDA leads on technical operations within the Reserve, including law enforcement patrols, biomonitoring, research etc..

Please find below the current CMC members.
