DescriptionThe overall objectives of the project are to: (a) conserve the arid land adapted animal and plant biodiversity of the transboundary range and grazing lands common to Mozambique, Zambia, and Zimbabwe by improving community-based resource management; and (b) improve the quality of rural livelihoods through diversified and sustainable natural resource use and biodiversity protection.
Implementation StatusThe Project was approved in October 2002 by the GEF Council, contingent amongst other things on co-financing pledges being confirmed. Much of the original co-financing pledged at the time of work programme entry (US$ 5.59 million) has since been withdrawn owing to the closure of several donor activities. However, as this effort has not borne fruition, the project has been cancelled as per GEF rules and regulations and funding returned to the GEF Trustee.
