Policy development and review are critical to law enforcement efforts and coherence in legal texts pertaining to chimpanzees, as well as national-level legislation when it comes to ESIA requirements and legal frameworks surrounding the regulation of artisanal mining. The section below addresses critical steps in the review of legal texts, incoherency and gaps to yield recommendations for effective legal reform.
Objective 3.1: By early 2021, a review of national legal frameworks related to western chimpanzees has been completed, including ESIA requirements and artisanal mining.
Objective 3.2: By 2022, GAP analyses of the laws impacting western chimpanzee conservation are published for each country.
Objective 3.3: By early 2023, formal proposals for legal reforms exist and are promoted by relevant government stakeholders.
