Ecologically Sensitive Sites in Africa. Volume 1: Occidental and Central Africa
This publication is made in response to requests from task managers in the Africa region who wanted to know the location and properties of the ecologically sensitive sites in Africa to which they could refer while implementing Bank projects in the region. This publication is also made to assist task managers to comply with the Bank's Operational Policy Note No. 11.02 on "Wildlands: Their Protection and Management in Economic Development" . The publication has been compiled by the World Conservation Monitoring Centre, UK in collaboration with the Africa Environment Division of the Technical Department at the World Bank. It contains the most up-to-date available data and we hope it will find wider application beyond the Bank's operations.
