What future for primates? Conservation struggles in the forests of Cross River State, Nigeria
The researchers identify shortcomings and gaps of international and domestic forest governance, for instance, the ongoing expansion
of agriculture in forest areas, a lack of collective action on forest fauna conservation at the local level, as well as conflicts amongst key actors at the sub-national level.
Current REDD+ governance in Cross River State largely fails to address fauna loss and local hunting practices, but also affect allocation and access of environmental benefits and burdens for local people.
