Aperçu du document

March 2022 – September 2022
In charge of creating accurate maps of all Community Resource Management Areas of the
programme and enhancing biomonitoring tools

Created in 2001, Noé is a non-profit organization whose mission is to safeguard biodiversity
around the world. Part of Noé’s work internationally aims at developing sustainable value
chains in the surroundings of protected areas, through the rational exploitation of natural
resources and a fair income for local communities in partnership with private companies. This
program operates by providing technical and financial support to local NGOs to implement
projects combining community development with biodiversity conservation.
Noé is currently implementing the second phase of its EconoBio programme in Ghana and Côte
d'Ivoire aiming at developing income generating activities benefiting to the communities living
on the outskirts of four Protected Areas (Western Wildlife Corridor, Mole National Park, Atewa
Range Forest and Kwabre-Tanoe transboundary forest in western Ghana/eastern Côte d’Ivoire)
and contributing to biodiversity conservation (see the project description attached). Noé works
in partnership with 5 local NGOs (A Rocha Ghana, ORGIIS, WAPCA, Northcode, and CSRS in Côte
d’Ivoire) on 5 main value chains: organic shea butter, organic baobab powder and oil, and
beekeeping in the north of Ghana, cocoa and organic coconut oil in the south, and cassava in
Côte d’Ivoire, as well as on several Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) such as grains of
The project also supports the establishment and the strengthening of local governance
structures to ensure sustainable and community-based management of natural resources
(Community Resource Management Areas - CREMA in Ghana, Federation of Inter-Village
Management Associations - FAIVG in Ivory Coast).
Location: Based in Ghana with most time on all project sites.
Salary: 592 €/mois
Contract: 6-months internship (with at least 5 months on the field)
Advantages: Flight ticket, visa fees, local transportation to the project sites. Please note that
you will need to work with your own computer.

Main responsibilities and activities
Throughout the duration of the contract, with the support of the Programme Manager in
Ghana and in close collaboration with our partnering NGOs, the Wildlife Division and the GIS
Unit of Resource Management Support Center the intern will:
1) Provide accurate maps of the CREMAs involved in the projects

Delineate community territories;
Delineate CREMA boundary (core zone and buffer) and collect all information on status
(constitution and by-laws, registration at District Assembly, delegation of power…);
Indicate every significant points (nurseries, processing centres…);
If possible, include land use (farmland, shea/baobab collecting areas, shrines, protected
areas, rehabilitation areas, former mining sites…) in the maps.

2) Improve the monitoring of all planting activities with the NGOs and CREMAs

Provide baseline maps indicating the sites of reforestation or rehabilitation (number of
trees/diversity of trees par sites), the farms involved in agroforestry and community
planting areas;
Develop proper tools for monitoring with on-site coordinators, when it appears needed,
and train them on how to implement them;
Train the on-site coordinators on updating of the maps.

3) Enhance the biomonitoring tools with various stakeholders of the landscapes
In collaboration with the local NGOs and other stakeholders (Mole National Park, Wildlife
Division, CREMA executives, community patrollers…):

Use the data collected with the present biomonitoring tools (Cyber-Tracker, event
Book) within CREMAs to produce a map of the current existing patrolling system,
produce absence/presence of key wildlife fauna species, produce a maps of illegal
activities (illegal logging for instance);
Improve the GPS data collection of the above mentioned tools;
Identify other main factors on the landscape and include the relevant events in the
maps (areas of elephant/farmers conflict, areas of Herdsmen/community conflicts,
impact of infrastructures…).

4) Present the results to the different stakeholders, especially the partners and the CREMA
Technical Working Group.
The result of this work will be used at different levels: the programme level by the partnering
NGOs and Noé for capitalization and communication, the national level by the Wildlife Division
to inform a national map of the CREMAs.
