Enhancing Tanzanian human-wildlife coexistence through corridor restoration and livelihood projects
Morogoro Regional Administration, National Land Use Planning Commission, Tanzania Forestry Services, Rainforest Africa, Associazione Mazingira
This project will address the fundamental drivers of human-wildlife conflict in the Kilombero Valley, Tanzania through the restoration of a key wildlife corridor and facilitation of community-led livelihood projects along the corridor.
A bottom-up land use planning process will be followed to create and manage the corridor. Working with farmers and the wider community, beehive fence projects, agroforestry, community banks and coexistence tourism will increase and diversify incomes, reduce crop losses from wildlife, and conserve biodiversity and ecological connectivity.
