President Omar Bongo established Gabon’s National Park System declaring thirteen national parks in August 2002, most of these being newly established parks. A visit by the United States Secretary of State, Colin Powell, and later a delegation of US Government officials in February 2003, encouraged the involvement of US technical assistance to support Gabon confront the challenges of implementing President Bongo’s declaration. As a result of these trips, US Forest Service (USFS) was identified as one of the US agencies to provide technical assistance to help Gabon achieve their natural resources objectives.
