1) Objective

The primary objective of this grant is to elevate public awareness regarding the significant negative impacts of illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing, illegal logging, and poaching on Gabon’s environment and economy. Gabon’s rich natural resources, both maritime and terrestrial, are under severe threat from these illicit activities. For instance, illegal logging is estimated to cost the nation approximately $1 billion annually, while IUU fishing results in losses of about $610 million each year. The grant aims to inform and educate the public, fostering a deeper understanding of the environmental, economic, and social repercussions of these crimes.

Additionally, it seeks to drive behavior change by encouraging sustainable practices and active community involvement in conservation efforts. The campaign will also focus on advocacy and policy support to strengthen regulations and enforcement measures against these illegal activities. Through partnerships with local organizations, government bodies, the press, and influencers, the initiative aims to create a united front for maximum impact, ultimately fostering long-term behavior change and sustainable resource management.
