This report summarizes the findings of evaluation of the Nouabale-Ndoki national park management project, implemented by the Wildlife Conservation Society in the Republic of Congo. The project addressed the following objectives: Assist the government in capacity building of the Ministry of Waters and Forests in the creation and management of the Nouabale-Ndoki national park; Conduct research leading to the creation of other protected areas in the country; Training of national staff; Establish sustainable forestry practices at a national level; Develop a national program of conservation education. The evaluation team emphasized the need for making proper use of scientific research in the management of the national park. The team suggested unification of the management committee of the Nouabale-Ndoki project to centralize and monitor the numerous activities undertaken by the project. The team further recommended that the project adopt a strategy for zoning and management planning based on biological knowledge, needs of the local population, and security of the area. They noted that to promote ecotourism in the national park, changes in the national legislation related to wildlife exploitation would be necessary to better protect biodiversity.The evaluation team recommended that the project conduct an inventory of sites appropriate for eco tourism, assess the biological impact of tourism on the wildlife, and evaluate the social, ecological, and distributional impacts of benefits from tourism. Finally, the team noted an immediate need for recruitment and training of park guards and the deployment of a monitoring team at the Central African Republic border.
