The GIZ-SADC TUPNR programme supports the development of the Kasungu-Lukusuzi Component of the Malawi-Zambia TFCA. The newly formed Zambian Department of National Parks and Wildlife (Z DNPW, former Zambian Wildlife Authority, ZAWA) and the Malawian Department of National Parks and Wildlife (M DNPW), provide resources and cooperate in the development of the TFCA, also by involving non-state actors.

The GIZ funded project supports Community Conservation Areas (CCAs) created and managed by local communities living in the corridor areas. The long-term objective is to minimize human-wildlife conflict while improving free wild animal movement through the Luangwa landscape. The project supports the development of alternative livelihoods to the communities in and around the Kasungu and Lukusuzi NPs. Measure include the improved access to markets for agricultural products, small-scale agro processing and cross-border tourism products. The programme strengthens the joint management and cross-border governance of the TFCA structures through transboundary Park Management Committees, by involving local governments and communities.
