Both ENDS supports this partner in poverty reduction and environmental conservation.
WORKS WITH BOTH ENDS ON
RRDC promotes sustainable forest management in Nigeria's Cross River state. They do this by rallying bush communities and lobbying national and international players. Both ENDS presented RRDC's approach in the Encyclopaedia article: The Politics of Environment.
ADDED VALUE OF PARTNERSHIP
Both ENDS used its network to link RRDC to IUCN-NL, Oxfam Novib and the EU. In addition, Both ENDS has assisted RRDC by helping to monitor the Allan Blackia project, founded by Unilever. RRDC managed to convince the Cross River State Government to change its forest policy into one based on ecotourism. The cooperation also resulted in the closing of the Chinese logging company WEMPCO.
