Training of field technicians from GSAC Alliance member NGOs in February 2020

Training of field technicians from GSAC Alliance member NGOs in February 2020
From 24 to 28 February 2020, the GSAC Alliance organized a training in Yaoundé (Cameroon) for field technicians from member NGOs.

A total of 14 technicians benefited from this workshop thanks to the financial support of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the African Conservation Foundation (ACF). This training focused on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the use of the QGIS software. GIS allows all types of spatial and geographical data to be processed, analysed, managed and presented in the form of maps, which can be be a useful tool in conservation. 

Member NGOs, who are working in the field, regularly collect data on the great apes within their intervention site (transects) and on the landscape (fragmented habitat, intensive farming, deforestation etc.). The GSAC Alliance support its members on this topic so that they can effectively use the data collected and thus improve their actions, without resorting to external expertise.

This training is certainly not the last, as the GSAC Alliance plans to continue to build skills by organizing new training to go further. The ultimate goal is to provide effective tools to the 7 member NGOs to represent the activity and presence of great apes in their intervention sites.
