Central Africa

The central Africa regional assessments were part of the final region to be completed as part of the Pan-Africa project. In total almost 2,500 species were assessed and mapped for the central Africa region, including endemics and more widely distributed species. Individual species assessments are now available through the search tool above.

The full regional report will be available late 2010, including an analysis of major threats to the regions freshwater species, and key conservation areas.

Please note, as this project was carried out over six years, regional assessments may not be as accurate as more recently completed global assessments for a species. For the most up-to-date information currently available to the IUCN for a particular species, check the Global or Pan-Africa assessments.
