Project description

During this explorative mission to the Yangambi forest reserve, we will train three Congolese field leaders who will then be able to perform data collection independently, reducing the need to bring researchers from North to South. This will reduce the carbon footprint of our fieldwork-oriented projects, reduce the risk of delays (e.g. pandemic), and contribute to capacity building in D.R.Congo.
