KAZA – A Major Step for Transboundary Conservation in Africa

A major step for wild nature and people in Southern Africa occurred on 18 August 2011 at the summit of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). At the closing session, the presidents of Angola, Zambia, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Botswana signed the treaty that officially recognizes the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA). In planning since the concept was agreed in 2003, KAZA is now officially the world’s largest conservation area involving a mosaic of different resource protection areas, including National Parks, Game Reserves, Forest Reserves, Conservancies, Game/Wildlife, Management Areas and Communal lands.
