The project name is GEVES-PROCOBI (Gestion Valorisation et Élimination de Salvinia pour Produire du Compost et du Biogaz), its purpose was to help the populations living around the lake Ossa wildlife sanctuary in Dizangue to fight against the invasion of the lake by the aquatic plant Salvinia Molesta. The purpose was to bring the community together to retrieve the Salvinia Molesta from the lake, to train them on how to transform these plants into Compost and Biogas, and to encourage the youth of the community to volunteer for the well being of their lake and their local economy through common actions.

1. Sensitization of the local communities by FGC
2. Training of the populations and volunteers on production of compost and biogas from organic waste
3. Retrieval of Salvinia Molesta by FGC, along with local and national volunteers
