Building capacities in Ecosystem Services Assessment, High Conservation Values (HCV), Certification (FSC, RSPO, SAN, ISO ...), Sustainable forestry & agriculture management, Forest carbon accounty & Biomass survey, GIS and Remote Sensing.
Promotion of rapid biodiversity assessment which is a means of quickly collect data on a species in a given area. It is done promptly with the aim of providing information to guide conservation action.
Promote and develop research on restoration ecology, conservation biology, wildlife ecology and management, ecosystems services, human/social dimension of natural resource management, climate adaptation and sustainability, remote sensing and GIS.
Conduct studies on Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA), Project development, management and evaluation.
MonitorTrust is an independent group of sustainability and natural resources management practitioners, scientists and thinkers, working at local, national and international scales.
We believe that there has never been a more crucial time in Africa particularly: to ensure that people and organisations have the necessary skills and tools to achieve their sustainable development aims; to generate the information and knowledge needed to underpin sustainable policies and actions in the field; and to efficiently communicate on policies, sustainable development initiatives and management practices.
We focus on: Building sustainability capacity for natural resources management; Biodiversity assessment, ecological/conservation research, environmental and social diagnoses; and Sterling communication.
We have a pool of experts in wildlife and forest resource management, GIS and remote sensing.
We have a pool of specialists in biodiversity assessment.
We have a pool of mentors to support young trainees on the ecological approaches in wildlife and forest domains.
We have a pool of consultants in the environmental and social diagnoses domains.
