The USDA Forest Service (USFS), through the Office of International Programs, has a long history of promoting sound natural resource management throughout Africa. USFS IP links the skills of its 35,000 domestic technical experts with partners through short, medium, and longterm technical assistance assignments to build capacity for improved natural resource management. USFS IP currently works in over 15 African countries in collaboration with host country governments (National and state/province level), NGOs, local communities, and other US agencies (USAID, USDA, US Dept of State, etc.), including past missions in Nigeria, Cameroon, and other West and Central African countries in the areas of forest management, land use planning, extractive industries, community based natural resource management, agroforestry, climate change mitigation and adaptation, ecotourism, fire management, biodiversity and habitat conservation, watershed management, and grazing. The main objective of this scoping mission is to assess the current situation of forest management and wildlife conservation in Cross River State and to investigate areas of possible technical support for the Cross River State Forestry Commission (CRSFC) by the USFS. Additionally, the high level USFS team seeks to explore the expansion of relationships with other USG agencies, Nigerian agencies, and NGOs active in supporting sound natural resource management in Nigeria.
