Novel Forms of Livestock & Wildlife Integration Adjacent to Protected Areas in Africa

Project Summary

The project aims to achieve sustainable biodiversity conservation by alleviating and controlling conflicts over land use between pastoralism, cropping, and conservation. It will explore and understand the dynamics of land use in Tanzania using this improved knowledge to generate greater returns to key stakeholders from both wildlife and livestock simultaneously. This is thought to be achieved by developing and implementing land use plans, establishing benefit sharing mechanisms from wildlife such as community-managed business ventures and by improving livestock production by pastoralists such as access to health, marketing and water.
