The project promotes a model of "Community Conservancies" as a means to ensure ecological connectivity and socio-economic sustainability. The core elements of the model are maintenance of the ecological connectivity within the KAZA landscape and sustainable use of wildlife and supply of legally and sustainably harvested game meat. It is assumed that the supply of wild meat to local communities and nearby towns is currently based on illegal hunting and this is putting wildlife and habitat under severe strain. Under this project, this primary source of protein will be protected. Such efforts will be bolstered by offering an alternative and affordable source of protein production (e.g. domestic stock and/or fish) or through an increase of social pressure against the illegal harvesting of wildlife.
