There is a brighter future
where an ecologically and economically thriving landscape supports both people and wildlife
We believe that we can keep movement areas open and
rebuild this landscape through the following approaches:
LAND AND RESOURCE RIGHTS
Securing communal rights to land
and natural resources.
GOVERNANCE AND MANAGEMENT
Strengthening governance at village and community levels and improving natural resource management capacity.
Increasing benefits to encourage communities to protect their natural resources
Improving reproductive and sexual health.
Ensuring livestock production is profitable and sustainable.
Building climate resilient communities and development.
BY 2018 WE AIM TO:
- Important grazing and migratory routes that connect major ecosystems in the northern rangelands are more secure, with at least 10 villages having obtained legal rights to their land, and a minimum of 500,000 hectares of land designated as integrated livestock and wildlife grazing land;
- Benefits from natural resources are increasingly retained in communities, with at least 10 villages earning a minimum of USD $ 20,000 per year through sustainable enterprises; and,
- The economic and environmental resilience of the people and the landscape has improved, with local livelihoods enhanced and key wildlife populations (elephant, wildebeest, zebra and lion) stable.
