NAMIBIA - New conservancy programme to promote community-based conservation

A new Conservancy Programme opens the way for Namibia's communal area farmers to manage, protect and benefit from wildlife and other natural resources. The programme boosts rural economies, encourages empowerment of local communities and addresses rural poverty by providing alternative forms of land-use such as wildlife management for community-based nature tourism.
