Project Profile: Bushmeat IMAP

Jun 19, 2009

The Bushmeat Information Management and Analysis Project (Bushmeat IMAP) is an initiative developed by BCTF to create a central repository of information on the causes and solutions of bushmeat hunting, consumption and trade in sub-Saharan Africa, with a particular focus on Central Africa and protected areas. BCTF and the Global Forest Watch (GFW) program of World Resources Institute (WRI) have a formal partnership to develop this project, with funding to support a six-month pilot effort beginning February 2004.Bushmeat IMAP combines GFW’s expertise in mapping forest use in Central Africa with BCTF’s existing worldwide databases and professional networks, to provide the most current, site-specific information available to individuals and organizations addressing the bushmeat trade.
