Albertine Rift Conservation Society

The Albertine Rift Conservation Society (ARCOS) ARCOS is a Regional Network of NGOs, governments, Community- Based Organisations, established in 1995 founded to address critical factors derailing conservation efforts in the Rift including the lack of public awareness and effective policies on the conservation and sustainable management of natural resources, and the limited capacity and collaborative action of local institutions to address these problems. In response, ARCOS currently prioritizes three areas: • Enhancing integrated management of biodiversity and ecosystem services • Facilitating mechanisms for assessing and addressing climate change • Empowering grassroots organizations to participate in environmental governance and threat reduction
