Virunga Alliance

Howard G. Buffett, Richard Branson and Desmond Tutu wrote a great article in the Huff Post BUSINESS section dd. 27APR2014:

“The three of us have long histories of supporting the protection of Africa’s unique natural resources, wildlife, habitats and its people. We have enormous respect for the role private investment can play in development. We see an opportunity in Virunga and elsewhere to go beyond traditional aid to help local economies grow. Notably, there is a well-considered economic plan for the region called the Virunga Alliance that the park’s own chief warden, Emmanuel de Merode, has developed and the park’s director general has endorsed. It is already showing impressive progress.”
