Goal of the programme

The overall developmental or long-term goal for the programme is to:
Improve the standards of living of people adjacent to protected areas in the GLTFCA.


Objectives of the programme

The project purpose is to contribute to the development of sustainable land and natural resource use systems in target areas adjacent to the GLTFP and help communities to make the best use of the potential “value added” opportunities the TFCA has to offer.  The full development of benefits and opportunities from the creation of the GLTFP and the GLTFCA are most likely to be realised in those areas that are both adjacent to existing national parks and to international boundaries, which are already roamed by the wildlife population and touched by tourism flows.  The focus of the activities, therefore, will be on those development opportunities that should be presented by the creation of the TFCA and those aspects of rural development that may support the realization of expected TFCA benefits while supporting where possible and appropriate the diversification of livelihoods and intensification of food production.

The four project Outputs are:

  1. Facilitating the development of enabling policy frameworks for transboundary natural resource management by communities.
  2. Ecological, economic and social advantages (value added) of TBNRM identified and appropriate interventions developed.
  3. Targeted natural resource management projects in each of the partner countries implemented.
  4. Project management established and operational.
