Development of a Sustainable Use & Responsible Hunting Protocol

To be confirmed
GLTFCA Implementing Agencies; Hunting Associations; Community Based Organisations; National, Provincial and Local Governments
Specific components that should be addressed by such a protocol could include the following: (1) Background to sustainable use and hunting within the GLTFCA; (2) Legal and policy review; (3) Hunting ethics; (4) Benefit flow - including benefits to conservation and community development; (5) Sustainable use and hunting protocol - including guidelines on the hunting of specific high value tourism species.

Given the occurrence of sustainable use practices on various levels of intensity within the GLTFCA, and also the in light of the fact that it has been identified as a community livelihoods option in all three GLTFCA Partner countries, a process has been initiated to develop and draft a sustainable use and responsible hunting protocol for the project.  The main purpose of the proposed protocol would be to ensure that sustainable use and responsible hunting occurs in the various components of the GLTFCA to the benefit of broader society.
