Note d’information : point sur la situation actuelle des pangolins et leur état de conservation en Afrique de l’Ouest

En Afrique de l’Ouest, les pangolins font face à plusieurs menaces majeures, y compris la perte d’habitat causée par l’exploitation du bois et l’agriculture, la surexploitation pour la consommation locale et pour satisfaire la demande internationale en écailles, ainsi que le manque d’application et le non-respect des lois relatives aux espèces sauvages.

Revue de littérature sur la vulnérabilité côtière en Côte d’Ivoire

L’étude de vulnérabilité de la zone côtière s’appuie sur une démarche participative ainsi que sur le calcul de l’Indice de Vulnérabilité Côtière Intégrée (IVCI) qui prend en compte les considérations physiques notamment la géomorphologie, la pente côtière, la dynamique sédimentaire et du trait de côte, les forçages météo-marins, les courants, la bathymétrie et les aspects socio-écologiques que sont l’écologie, les infrastructures, les activités économiques, etc.

Literature Review of Coastal Vulnerability in Côte d’Ivoire

The purpose of this study is to develop a synoptic mapping of coastal vulnerability in Côte d’Ivoire that can be used to identify the most vulnerable aspects of each segment of the Ivorian coastline, inform preventive risk management, and thereby improve climate adaptation and strengthen the resilience of coastal populations and infrastructures.

Issues Brief: The Current Status and Conservation Options for Pangolins in West Africa

In West Africa, pangolins are confronted by several substantial threats, including habitat loss driven by logging and agriculture, overexploitation for both local consumption and to supply international demand for scales, and non-application of and non-compliance with wildlife laws.

Scoping Study for Pangolin Conservation in West Africa

Pangolins, the world’s only truly scaly mammals, have recently been thrust into the global limelight as representatives of the complex conservation issue of global wildlife trade and biodiversity conservation in the tropics. Recognized as the most heavily trafficked mammals in the world, the eight pangolin species are threatened by a unique combination of factors, including habitat loss and overexploitation for domestic and international consumption.

Harnessing Ecosystem Services to Increase Food Security and Climate Resilience

Throughout West Africa—and indeed the world—the twin concerns of economic security and food security often hinge on the vital link between ecosystems and ecosystem services. Healthy ecosystems provide a diverse range of food sources and support entire agricultural systems; the protection of ecosystems such as forests, watersheds, and coastal environments is a win-win for food security. Yet the contribution of ecosystems to food security and sustainable livelihoods, whether a single community’s rural subsistence or an entire country’s gross domestic product, is often undervalued or ignored. Similarly, functional ecosystem services represent the many and varied benefits that humans freely gain from the natural environment. They are integral to providing clean drinking water, the decomposition of wastes, and the natural pollination of crops and other plants.
