Supporting Community-led Conservation in the Great-Limpopo Trans-Frontier Conservation Area
The EUROPEAN UNION is the major sponsor of Phase 1 of the WILD Programme.
The Action is funded under the DCI Food instrument of the European Union- promoting improved food and income security in the most vulnerable communal communities and households in very low rainfall areas within Natural Region V of Zimbabwe.
The WILD Programme seeks to acheive these objectives through incorporation of drought-tollerant, robust wildlife-based land use into communal economies while developing improved institutional frameworks, community governance and gender equality to imporve both ecological and socio-economic conditions and resilience at community and ecosystem levels.
SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE TECHNOLOGY (SAT) is registered as a Private Voluntry Organisation (PVO) in Zimbabwe and is focused on improvement of extension, training and farming techniques in communal land-use systems for improved efficiency, productivity and sustainability. SAT is the lead implementing partner of WILD.
The ZIMBABWE WILDLIFE VETERINARY TRUST was set up by a consortium of key conservation, veterinary and philanthropic stakeholders dedicated to the harmonisation of land use activities within and adjacent to Trans-fronteir Conservation Areas (TFCA's) and to promoting community participation in wildlife and ecosystem conservation.
