 1.    Background 


 The International Gorilla Conservation Program (IGCP) is a coalition of three international conservation organizations (Conservation International, Fauna & Flora International, and WWF) which was formed with the mission to ensure the long-term conservation of the mountain gorilla and its afromontane and high-altitude forest habitat.


The programme operates in the three countries that share the habitat of the mountain gorillas; Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Rwanda, and Uganda, and works in close partnership with the Protected Area Authorities of the three countries (Rwanda Development Board, RDB in Rwanda; Institute Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature, ICCN in DRC; Uganda Wildlife Authority, UWA in Uganda) and the umbrella mechanism for transboundary collaboration through the Greater Virunga Transboundary Collaboration.


The IGCP strategy is based on four objectives:


  • Strategic Objective 1 - By 2024, improved tourism practices contribute to risk reduction to mountain gorillas by at least 30%.

  • Strategic Objective 2 -. By 2024, men and women in park adjacent communities perceive that the positives from mountain gorilla conservation are equitably distributed, and outweigh the negatives.

  • Strategic Objective 3 By 2024, improved monitoring and transboundary collaboration contributes to at least 30% reduction in illegal activities in mountain gorilla habitat

  • Strategic Objective 4: By 2024, habitat and buffer zone safeguarding processes contribute to healthy mountain gorilla populations while protecting community rights.
