Consultancy of Evaluation of the End Project GVTC

Greater Virunga Transboundary Collaboration (GVTC)

Greater Virunga Transboundary Collaboration is a Mechanism for strategic, transboundary, collaborative management of the Greater Virunga Landscape. Set up by ICCN, RDB and UWA with their partners in the region, it started with ranger collaboration to protect mountain gorillas in Mgahinga, Bwindi, Virunga and Volcanoes NPs in 1991. Later it has expanded in scope (tourism, community conservation and research and monitoring). The area also now extends to central and north Virunga (DRC), Queen Elizabeth, Rwenzori Mountains and Semuliki NPs (Uganda). The Executive Secretariat sits from 2008 in Kigali to coordinate and link stakeholders on behalf of the Protected Area Authorities.

Advert for consultancy of Evaluation of the End Project GVTC

GVTC is an intergovernmental organization established by the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Rwanda, and Uganda, governed by a treaty signed on October 30, 2015. Its purpose is to foster transboundary collaboration for wildlife conservation and tourism development in the Greater Virunga Landscape (GVL), which spans protected areas in all three countries, including Virunga National Park, Volcanoes National Park, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Rwenzori Mountains National Park, Semuliki, and Queen Elizabeth National Park.

The GVL is ecologically diverse and home to species such as chimpanzees, mountain gorillas, okapis, and elephants. However, it faces threats from illegal resource exploitation driven by population growth, poverty, dependence on natural resources, and regional political instability.
