ZEIN M., & al. (2005). Education environnementale dans la forêt d'Adiopodoumé. Série éducative Sud-Nord N°1. Editions CJB
Environmental education in the Adiopodoume forest.
The implementation of this project by the CJB, with the cooperation of the "Centre Suisse de Recherche Scientific" in the Ivory Coast (2002), enabled the re-evaluation of this small forest with the participation of both the locals and the authorities, thus guaranteeing its conservation. It is situated on the border of Abidjan, which has about 3 million inhabitants. A publication came out in 2005, thanks to the participation of the inhabitants, the founders and the Ivoirian authorities concerned.
