CARPE III DC Partners meeting January 27-28, 2014

Goals:

  1. CARPE III plans shared among CAFEC and EMAPS implementing partners
  2. FWS grants programs coordinated with CARPE III
  3. US facilitation of Congo Basin Forest Partnership coordinated with CARPE III
  4. Partnerships initiated and enhanced through formal and non-formal networking
  5. USAID informed by participant perspectives on CARPE implementation


Focus:

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.
