Project Summary:
This project seeks to balance biodiversity conservation and human livelihoods, in an area of wetlands which are a vital habitat for wildlife but also for the rural communities who have become increasingly dependent on them. It will do this through capacity building and demonstrating viability of sustainable livelihood approaches, in an area where poverty is driving unsustainable use of wildlife. It is based in the Driefontein Grasslands, which is a Ramsar site, supporting many threatened species and more than half of Zimbabwe’s crane population. The lessons learnt will be shared across Zimbabwe and beyond.
