Since 1988, Collectif des Groupements d'Intérêts Economiques des Femmes pour la Protection de la Nature (COPRONAT), a partnership between local communities and the Senegalese government, has protected the Popenguine Natural Reserve. This collective of women's groups in nine villages is responsible for managing mangrove nurseries, reforestation, waste management, and environmental education.
In 2006, COPRONAT won the Equator Prize which is awarded biennially to recognize outstanding community efforts to reduce poverty through the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. This video was created as part of our Biodiversity for Local Livelihoods project.
