The Solution

In 2014, African Parks signed a 50-year mandate with Government, marking a long-term commitment to protecting biodiversity and creating a safe haven for local communities. With the injection of results-based funding through carbon credits, the African Parks has been able to commit long terms conservation investments in management, infrastructure, law enforcement, land and wildlife rehabilitation and communities. In 2020 it was agreed to expand African Parks area of management to about 50,000 km2.


The Impact

An active dialogue with and management of transhumance herders has moved the cattle out of the core conservation area and allowed it to regenerate and strengthen its spectacular wildlife and biodiversity. To date, one of the park's flagship species, lions, have risen in numbers from a few in 2017 to over 30 by 2019. Carbon finance will allow for the expansion of the protected area towards 50,000 km2 and at the same time will also facilitate African Parks to make further community impact, in terms of security, employment, education and health care.
