Our mission

We have the twin aims of peace and conservation because conflicts threaten the environment and are themselves increasingly the result of environmental pressures.

Know more
The Foundation draws its inspiration from the Brazzaville Accords, which were signed in the Congolese capital on 13 December 1988. A key moment in the history of modern Africa, they led to a peaceful settlement of the conflicts in southern Africa, secured the independence of Namibia and paved the way for the release of Nelson Mandela and an end to apartheid.
The Brazzaville Foundation is managed by an experienced Board of Trustees, supported by a Chief Executive and an international Advisory Board made up of highly distinguished individuals whose experience and expertise enable them to give guidance to the Foundation and assist it in its work. Our Patron is HRH Prince Michael of Kent GCVO.

The launch of the Congo Basin Blue Fund takes a crucial step forward with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding in Oyo, the Republic of the Congo, on 9 March 2017. As the author of the original initiative, the Brazzaville Foundation congratulates all those involved.
