Head in the Sky, Feet in the Mud
Frank Hawkins, Vice President Africa and Madagascar Division, Conservation International (CI)
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is now emerging from a decade of civil war. In this post-conflict context CI is helping local communities protect their globally important biodiversity and find grass-roots solutions for the sustainable use of their natural resources. These programs enable and empower local people to become stewards of their own natural resources, improve their well-being through conservation, and increase their educational opportunities. These programs provide local Africans solutions to the global conservation challenges of the 21st century.
