The Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA)

Share This Landscape

The Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA / KAZA TFCA) is Africa’s largest conservation landscape and the world’s largest transfrontier conservation area (520,000km2). It incorporates parts of five countries; Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe, and is home to one of the largest remaining populations of cheetah.

In October 2015, the CCI (then the RWCP) was part of a group of 37 carnivore conservation practitioners, government officials, researchers and advisors who got together to develop a unified and strategic approach for conserving large carnivores at scale in KAZA. The KAZA Carnivore Conservation Coalition (KCCC) was born out of this collaborative approach, and the CCI’s southern African coordinator has been on the steering committee since its inception.

The KCCC is a coalition of conservation practitioners who work collaboratively at the landscape scale to develop and implement a strategic and unified program of outcome-focussed conservation and development activities to secure KAZA as a focal landscape for large carnivores.

As part of the strategy, 18 site based priority projects and 3 cross-cutting projects were identified, most with a focus on communities and connectivity.  The CCI is active in supporting the entire suite of projects, but focusses on three main projects in three of the five focal areas. The CCI supports three projects in the landscape:
