This study describes the region of the Parc d’Odzala and its advantages, and proposes options for development and organization of the park. An inventory of natural resources, particularly flora and fauna, has been carried out, as well as a socio-economic study of the neighboring population.

The study ends with concrete proposals on the layout of the park and its buffer zones, drawing attention particularly to the difficulties and risks that development of such a region implies.
