Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique et Technologique (CENAREST)
forestLAB has a framework research agreement with the Gabonese National Centre for Scientific and Technological Research (CENAREST) that enables forestLAB and its partners to conduct research in Gabon and to help with capacity building within local scientific institutions. Researchers from CENAREST’s relevant institutes, including the Institute of tropical Ecology Research, the Human Sciences Research Institute and the Agronomic and Forestry Research Institute, will work with forestLAB’s partners to further academic enquiry in Gabon around tropical forest ecosystems.
"Gabon has a proud history of scientific research and collaboration with international institutions. The forestLAB research programme will help with capacity building of our institutions in Gabon."
