The Laboratory of Applied Ecology has two buildings. One of them is located at the Institute of Advanced Biomedical Sciences (ISBA) at the Medical School of the University of Abomey Calavi at Cotonou. The second building is located on the main campus of the University. These buildings are equipped with offices having computers, printers, and internet connection, refrigerators for specimen conservation, lab equipment, and a library.

The Laboratory of Applied Ecology has administrative and financial autonomy. Its annual budget is more than US $ 40,000. The LEA is eagerly looking for ways to increase its budget in order to improve the work of its scientists and advance their discoveries for sustainable development in Africa and elsewhere.
