Welcome to GVL Portal

The Greater Virunga Landscape (GVL), known as the Central Albertine Rift, with its network of Protected Areas are widely spread over a long stretch of space with a rugged terrain. The poor road network combined with the remoteness and insecurity poses limitations in overall communication among stakeholders and hinders awareness of what is taking place within the GVL.
GVL is recorded among the world most diverse fragile ecoregions and home for surviving rare and endangered fauna and flora including the Mountain Gorillas and Elephants. The 7 National Parks are contiguous and in all constitute one ecosystem with varying habitats (see map).
