Greater Virunga Landscape Annual Conservation Status Report 2015

Executive Summary

This report is the first of its kind for the Annual Conservation Status Reports (ACSRs). The ACSRs are intended to demonstrate the result of the combined effort of the key stakeholders in the strategic transboundary collaborative management and measure the effects of these efforts. This initial ACSR focuses on the following key objectives:

  • To provide a coherent narrative about the current context and the changes that are influencing wildlife conservation and tourism development in GVL;
  • To offer a baseline of the conservation indicators, measures of improved conservation upon which future indicator analysis will be based;
  • To identify gaps in baseline data and information relevant for the context and conservation measures for the ACSR reports.

Both the conservation and context indicators used in this report were developed through a stakeholder participatory approach and reviewed by a TWG set up by the stakeholders in January 2016. While the selected four conservation indicators are aligned to Aichi Biodiversity indicators, they were reframed to specifically address GVL conservation issues. Scientifically credible, legitimate and relevant data will be collected from well-defined sources and effective methods employed for interpretation of this data for this and other subsequent reports.

The subsequent ACSR will measure conservation improvement based on the 2015
conservation indicator benchmarks through the collective efforts of key stakeholders
in GVL. In particular, it will show the trends from the current baseline and what the
GVTC partners will do to improve conservation. The baseline data gaps that have been
identified in this ACSR will be addressed in the 2016 ACSR due in June 2017.
