Guinée-Ecologie is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation. Created in 1989, it promotes actions in favour of good management of natural resources and lasting protection of Guinea’s environment.
The Mission of Guinée-Ecologie is to contribute to the protection of the environment, the conservation of biological diversity and the sustainable use of natural resources by participating in the development and implementation of policies, strategies and business plans, action conducive to maintaining a healthy living environment and safeguarding species and their habitats for the benefit of current and future generations.
Wetlands are highly productive and biologically diverse systems that are vital in enhancing water quality, controlling erosion, maintaining stream flows, and sequestering carbon. They are equally relevant due to their importance for biodiversity preservation and their biological services for humankind.
The PAPFor project aimed at tackling the problems of forest degradation through working with rural communities to create awareness on the importance of protecting the forest while at the same time promoting alternative livelihood options.
