Reconciling Biological Management and CBNRM Goals : the Palmwag Concession - Save the Rhino Trust (Namibia)

Titre : Reconciling Biological Management and CBNRM Goals : the Palmwag Concession - Save the Rhino Trust (Namibia)

Pays : Namibie

N° projet  : NAM - 03 - 03

Résumé du projet
The Kunene Region in Namibia is home to the world’s only black rhino population to have survived on communal lands without formal conservation status. These rhinos are also the only desert ecotype population of black rhinos. Unfortunately, the growth rate of this black rhino population (3.27%) is well below the IUCN/SSC African Rhino Specialist Group’s healthy growth rate (5% or more). The Kunene black rhino population represents a valuable opportunity to conserve biodiversity as well as improve local livelihoods. Save the Rhino Trust (SRT) wants to help local communities develop and expand rhino conservancies on communal lands. These conservancies will increase ecotourism, and reconcile biological management with regional Community Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) goals.
