Africa is the fastest growing continent in terms of economy and its already the worlds most youthful. This is Africa. A continent on the move and rising; the story of an awakening giant. As WWF, we are change makers and part of the change we seek in Africa conservation.

This first Annual Report by the WWF’s Regional Office for Africa (ROA) features highlights from the conservation program run by WWF from 11 country offices in Cameroon, Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe in 2015/2016.

The report covers a period of transition as the WWF Network moves from a global conservation program which rested on Global Initiatives, such as the Coastal East Africa and the Green Heart of Africa, to a new conservation framework based on six global goals – freshwater, climate and energy, food, forests, oceans and wildlife. The new program also includes three crosscutting drivers of change that have a major impact on the environment – governance, markets and finance. 

All nine of these issues are central to the future viability of Africa’s natural environment and its ability to support people and wildlife. By working with partners such as the African Development Bank and the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, WWF is well placed to play a key role across Africa in promoting environmentally responsible and socially sound development policies.
