Sustainable Wildlife Management to Improve Local Livelihoods

i) promote sustainable & legal use of resilient wildlife populations by local rural populations; and (ii) increase/diversify protein production for local & urban populations.

Aim: reduce hunting of wildlife to sustainable levels, protecting endangered wildlife species, conserving biodiversity, maintaining essential ecological roles of wildlife within forested & savanna ecosystems, and securing stocks & flows of provisioning ecosystem services.

Will do this by securing the rights & enhance management capacity of local populations depending for their livelihoods, food security & traditions on direct wildlife consumption. Also facilitate a shift from wild meat to other forms of animal & veg protein.
