Description

The project aims at supporting sustainable use and protection of natural resources in Transfrontier Conservation Areas (TFCA) in Southern Africa. The region is home to numerous species, including many endangered species like elephants, rhinos and large cats of prey. This unique fauna and flora provides the livelihood for the resident population, which keeps growing. Along with climate change and poaching, the growth in population puts pressure on the ecosystem. The goal of this project is to combine conservation with socioeconomic development of the resident population in Transfrontier Conservation Areas - protection and sustainable use of natural resources for the benefit of the people. Therefore, the project addresses three dimensions: Conservation, improved livelihoods for the resident population and improved management of TFCAs. Œ ŒIn order to achieve this goal, a flexible, demand-oriented and performance-based financing mechanism will be established, which allows for investments into thematically and geographically complementary measures. Project partner is the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Œ ŒFor the first phase of the project a financial contribution of 12 million euros is envisaged. 80 percent of these funds are earmarked for measures in the three biggest TFCAs - KAZA, Great Limpopo, Malawi-Zambia - which together represent 60 percent of the total TFCA area in the SADC-region. The project is expected to run from 2019 to 2025. Œ
