Strengthening the Capacity of the Protected Area System to Address New Management Challenges (PASS) Namibia

Namibie

Titre : Strengthening the Capacity of the Protected Area System to Address New Management Challenges (PASS) Namibia

Pays : Namibie

Durée : 2013 - 2016/17

Présentation
The project will provide greater conservation security to the protected area system that has recently expanded by 33,530 sq km, and a network of Communal Conservancies on communal lands has also expanded by an additional 30,837 sq km with more than 66 new conservancies registered to date. This will be done by addressing new management challenges such as fire and poaching that, if left unchecked, will erase recent conservation gains and result into loss of the aforementioned global environmental benefits. The project will also further cement PA finance to meet total expenditures required to address these new demands, and to improve the efficiency of enforcement.

The main objective of the project is to ensure that the Protected Area system of Namibia is strengthened and sustainably financed through improving current systems for revenue generation, introduction of innovative revenue generation mechanisms ; and cost effective enforcement through application of the Enforcement Economics Model.

Financement : Global Environment Facility (GEF) 4,400,000 - UNDP TRAC 50,000 USD
