Community Conservation



The Communal Areas Management Program for Indigenous Resources

It is premised on the conservation and sustainable utilization of wildlife and other natural resources as a livelihood option for rural communities – especially in wildlife-rich, hot, arid regions of Zimbabwe which are marginal for the purposes of subsistence agriculture.

Fifty-eight out of a total of sixty districts in the country are members of the program involving over 200,000 households and the programme helps to protect some 50,000km2 of wildlife habitat in communal areas countrywide
