Côte d’Ivoire

CIV

La Côte d’Ivoire dispose d’un important patrimoine naturel caractérisé par sa riche diversité biologique. Le réseau d’aires protégées sous la gestion de l’Office Ivoirien des Parcs et Réserves concentre 14 aires protégées représentatives des différents écosystèmes du pays. Ces aires protégées ont permis de conserver ce patrimoine naturel depuis plusieurs décennies. Dans sa vision permanente d’améliorer la gouvernance de ses aires protégées, la Côte d’Ivoire à travers l’OIPR, s’est engagée dans le processus Liste Verte des aires protégées et conservées de l’UICN depuis 2017. Dans cette phase pilote qui va se développer progressivement, les parcs nationaux de la Comoé et de Taï sont les premières aires protégées de la Côte d’Ivoire à s’engager dans le processus Liste Verte. Dans la mise en œuvre de ce processus Liste Verte, l’OIPR est accompagné par la GIZ, les associations des communautés locales des Universités et Centre de Recherche et la Fondations des Parcs et Réserves.

N’golo Abdoulaye KONE

I’m a lecturer at the « Unité de Formation et de Recherche Sciences de la Nature (UFR SN) » of the « Université NANGUI ABROGOUA » since 2013. As a member of the Laboratory of Ecology and Sustainable Development (LEDD) of this University, I’m also the Director of the Ivoiro-German Research Station in Ecology of the Comoé National Park. My research and teaching activities deal with general ecology (structure, ecosystem dynamics and functioning), with a particular interest in intra- and interspecific interactions. Moreover, my education, my management position, and the experience of working for more than a decade in and around the ivorian protected areas, obviously made biodiversity conservation one of my major interests. As a PhD in ecology, biodiversity conservation, sustainable management of ecosystems and the ecosystem services they provide are the mainstays of my fields of expertise. In addition, since 2013, I conducted more than a dozen research and training projects. Finally, since my beginnings in research, I produced twenty publications in internationally recognized journals.
