My Field exchange visit to Rwanda

By: Gashumba Damascene - Rural Environment and Development Organization (REDO)
As part of CEPF’s initiative to provide capacity building for its grantees, I took part in a site visit & learning exchange that was held in Nyungwe and Gishwati landscapes, Rwanda in March 2016. The exchange was organized by Tropical Biology Association. I was hosted by Straightforward Development Services Limited, Rwanda. Find out more about the visit and the lessons learnt here.


Malawi site visit and learning exchange


A site visit and learning exchange was recently concluded between two CEPF grantees; Forest of Hope Association, FHA (guest) and Action for Environmental Sustainability, AFES (host). The exchange took place in Malawi where AFES works in the Wlindi-Matip and Mughese forest reserves to raise awareness on the need for conservation among community members. The event ran from 21 – 25 September. The exchange acted as a follow-up of the targets created by the two organisations during the TBA Master class in March 2016 an was meant to provide a platform for the two organisations to exchange ideas and learn from each other due to the similarities of their projects.
