„...In a context deeply marked by climate change and its effects, every year comes with its set of new challenges: l Slaughtering of elephants or rhinos and recrudescence of illegal trade in wild animals; l Armed conflicts emerging here and there; and l Extractive industries that are always on the watch, waiting for a chance to set everything back. Building the future upon nature-based and innovative solutions then becomes a battle to be waged from the local to the global level and vice versa...“ an Extract from Foreword, Pr. Aimé J. Nianogo, Regional Director
