The 21st session of the Board of Directors of the FTNS was held from 14 to 16 May 2018 in the city of Douala, Cameroon. The biannual meeting this time sees the favourable participation of all eleven members of the Board, all gathered to evaluate the achievements of the FTNS in the first half of 2018. Among the newcomers, a former TNS figure, Mr. Thomas Breuer, is resurfacing as a new director for the German foundation, Regenwald Stiftung. Mr. Breuer, who has extensive field experience with WCS in Nouabale Ndoki National Park and currently holds the position of Programme Officer for Central and West Africa at WWF Germany, replaces Dr. Ilka Herbinger, who has reached the end of his term. To enrich this meeting, two resource persons: Dr Ilka Herbinger (WWF Germany) and Mr Chouaibou Tchoutpouen (COMIFAC Representative) were also present, as well as five members of the FTNS Executive Board.

Topics covered included: revision of the FTNS statutes, foundation communication actions, portfolio management, revision of FTNS procedure manuals, FTNS strategic and business plans, and management of collaboration with TNS parks.
