KAZA Summit Underway In Zambia

KAZA Summit Underway In Zambia:

The Kavango-Zambezi Trans-Frontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA) Summit took place in Livingstone, Zambia, in May 2023, and more than 400 people were there.

  • Representatives from Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe met at this meeting for five days, from May 27 to May 31.
  • The KAZA conservation area is made up of these countries.
  • It is known for having a lot of wildlife, including the world’s largest population of elephants.
  • The main goal of the KAZA TFCA meeting was to look at how far the conservation area has come since it was first set up and how it has grown.
  • The Memorandum of Understanding made in 2006 and the KAZA Treaty of 2011 were looked at to see how well they were being put into action to protect biodiversity and boost the economy through nature-based tourism.
  • Zimbabwe’s Director for Wildlife and Forestry Management talked about how the meeting wanted to make KAZA the best-managed conservation area in the world.
  • The summit was planned to end with a high-level meeting of the presidents of the five countries, where they were supposed to reaffirm their support for the conservation effort.
  • The main idea of the summit was to use the area’s natural and cultural resources to help everyone’s social and economic growth.
  • This helped people make choices that would improve both conservation efforts and community benefits.
