Résumé

Provision of health centers, limited access roads, basic nursery/primary schools etc to local communities in Cross River National Park. Most communities around the national park have little or no access to government health and basic educational facilities which are situated in urban areas far from them. Some have no access roads. Park management sourced funds from budgetary allocations as well as from external donors such as WWF, EU etc. to fund the projects.
