Gabon is a model country for sustainable forest management in Central Africa.

Eighty-eight percent of its land area is covered by tropical rainforest, which is part of the Congo Basin, the world's second largest "green lung" after the Amazon.
The protection of forests plays a decisive role in the fight against global warming.

WWF-Gabon office is committed to assisting the government in the application of national regulations on the management of fauna and flora, as well as in taking biodiversity into account in the activities of the extractive sectors.

It is also in this context that WWF’s activities in Gabon are deployed mainly in the field, with two offices in Mékambo and Gamba, supported by the head office based in Libreville.
We believe in promoting environmental education and learning sustainable development practices from an early age

Our biodiversity is under threat and its preservation has become an imperative. That is why we believe in:

  • Promoting environmental education and learning sustainable development practices from an early age
  • Improving the governance of natural resource management through a truly participatory and inclusive approach, with non-state stakeholders at the centre
  • The mobilisation of sufficient resources to support the achievement of conservation objectives, notably through the proper functioning of multisectoral consultation frameworks.
  • The establishment of integrated conservation-development programmes led by teams including different stakeholders
  • Driving innovation and transformation towards a low-carbon economy; as we live in this fast changing climate we need to drastically cut emissions (mitigation) and learn new ways to cope (adaptation).
