The African Wildlife Foundation, AWF, the secretariat of an alliance of over 80 African CSOs working in conservation, as the African CSOs Biodiversity Alliance (ACBA), will on Thursday, September 17, 2020, intensify its campaign for a better world that continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The online session titled ‘How COVID-19 Affected Policies on Wildlife Trade’ is part of the group’s strategy as an alliance that is aimed at engaging with the development of the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework in a manner that it reflects the values, rights, priorities and needs of African people.
This was disclosed by the Chief Executive Officer of Obudu Conservation Centre (OCC), Nela Duke-Ekpenyong, on Tuesday, in an online interview with journalists, saying in April 2020, her wildlife NGO dedicated to protecting, restoring and increasing awareness of the wild lands and wildlife on the Obudu Plateau and surrounding Cross River National Park, joined the communications and policy working group of ACBA.
