Campo-Ma'an Landscape: linking Nature and People’s livelihood
After three years of effective conservation work in the Campo-Ma’an National Park and its periphery, WWF has decided to broaden its scope and vision to include new geographic and thematic areas using a landscape approach.
The overall objective of the Kudu-Zombo Programme is :
“to conserve globally significant terrestrial and marine ecosystems in the Campo Ma’an/ Rio Campo area, through landscape planning and management for sustainable development”.
- Ensure the conservation of endangered species (elephants, great apes, marine turtles) and their habitats.
- Ensure the integrity of the Campo Ma’an National Park.
- Secure equitable and sustainable use of natural resources, improved access to markets to enhance the livelihoods of the local communities.
- Ensure the effective management of the marine ecosystems for biodiversity conservation and improved livelihoods
- Define and implement trans border conservation activities
- Ensure the conservation of mangrove ecosystems around the Ntem Estuary by strengthening resistance and resilience to Climate Change and Socio economic activities.
The Kudu-Zombo Programme aims at direct poverty alleviation, capacity building for local communities, policy influencing and learning and sharing.
