Mrs. Horline Njike Bilogue Mvogo,
General Secretary of Field Legality Advisory Group, has been active in civil society for almost 17 years now.
She is a jurist interested in issues related to law enforcement related to sustainable management of forest and wildlife resources in Africa. As a young jurist at the CED, she supports some forest communities in Cameroon for the creation of community forests. She believes that community forestry could be a way out for community to acquired an economic autonomy if laws enforcement was a reality. Also, passionate about criminal investigations and sensitive to issues of protection of wildlife, she joined LAGA (Last Great Ape organization) where she worked hard with the legal department team to fight against illegal trade in endangered wildlife species. In 2009, she joined the mandated independent forest monitoring (IFM) team (REM) in Cameroon as deputy director. She had the chance then to conduct IFM missions in forest concessions and other logging sites, to conduct legal analysis in order to improve control and forest case tracking litigation system. She then asserts her expertise to the mandated IFMs in the Republic of Congo and the Democratic Republic from 2010 to 2013, which gives her a general view of the situation of forest governance in the Congo Basin.
Convince that IFM approach is relevant for better governance in the management of natural resources, she co-founded the Field Legality Advisory Group, which now provides capacity building to national civil society organizations while improving techniques and adapting it to new issues such as REDD +. By joining the network, Horline wish to heard from other experience of using Law to mitigate problems of sustainable management of natural resource and to secure linked benefits for vulnerable groups.
