Background Information on the Project
A four-year USAID-funded program, the West Africa Biodiversity and Low Emissions Development (WABiLED) Program aims to combat wildlife trafficking and improve great ape conservation, reduce deforestation, forest degradation, and biodiversity loss in key transboundary forest landscapes, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase carbon sequestration from land use. TRAFFIC, Born Free USA, Winrock International, Re: wild, and Dalberg Associates are subcontracting with Tetra Tech ARD to deploy WABiLED.
WABiLED works with partners to strengthen national and regional networks and institutions to enforce and prosecute wildlife trafficking laws, implement regional and transboundary cooperation and biodiversity conservation strategies in Guinea, Liberia, Cote d’Ivoire, and Sierra Leone, and improve economic planning and low-emission development.
Regional, municipal, and national WABiLED efforts will give knowledge and information to inform conservation and development laws and policies.
