Namibie

Titre : GIZ - Community-based Natural Resource Management Conservancy Support

Pays/Région : Namibie
Localisation : Field-based, Kavango East, Kavango West, southern Kunene and Erongo regions

Durée : 2017

Objectifs
The main objective of this project is to strengthen NNF support activities for CBNRM.
Specifically, the project focuses on consolidating the support to conservancies in the areas where NNF is already active by supporting the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET), the conservancies, and the community forests to be compliant with CBNRM, to ensure a process of value chain development, which will allow an income increase for communities as well as strengthening their resilience to the effects of climate change through climate change adaptation.

Within three components, the project centralizes support for finance management, backstopping support, exchange meetings, logistics, and office support, as well as providing crosscutting technical support. The components are : -Support to existing and emerging conservancies in Kavango East and West regions - Support to conservancies in southern Kunene and Erongo regions -Resolving human-wildlife conflicts (HWC) in Kunene south and Erongo regions

Présentation
The main outcomes of the activities under the components are to create an enabling environment for new developments in conservancies to increase resilience and for improving the livelihood of conservancy members in Kavango East, West, southern Kunene, and Erongo.

In summary, the project aims to achieve the following :: * Conservancies can increasingly comply with the Namibian legislation related to CBNRM * Conservancies are relevantly equipped and trained to sustainably and efficiently manage their finances * Conservancies are relevantly equipped and trained to sustainably manage their natural resources * The livelihoods of conservancy members have improved through consolidated or newly established opportunities * The resilience to negative effects like HWC, climate change, or wildlife crime has increased * Conservancies are able to develop and implement appropriate HWC prevention measures * Conservancies are able to develop and submit adequate reports to their members and the ministry, and therefore increasingly comply with the legislation and good governance requirements and ; * Conservancies are able to access funds for rural development and climate change adaptation
