The AAF pursues its mission at the local level by establishing relationships with partner organizations that work in the field and on the ground in Central Africa, and in Asia. AAF aims to build the capacity of its partners and promote their long-term sustainability.
The AAF attempts to works with the local communities believing that conservation will only succeed with their support and involvement. This implication becomes even more crucial when it comes to countries where natural resources are an essential component of its development. AAF supports projects at a grassroots level and encourages local businesses and initiatives related to sustainable use of natural resources.
