Policy Influence:

  • Land tenure customary rights adopted for local communities and social benefits are derived for local development; government adopted the policy of district as pole of development with major grant and subsidized projects initiated to benefit community development; mainstreaming of GEF/SGP grant approach by the environmental sector for environmental conservation.

Successful project initiatives scaled up and replicated:

  • Caritas developed a honey production by communities of Zinave National Park that is now largely sold in major supermarkets; the Madjadjane community developed a community Lodge that also serves as University Eduardo Mondlane Research Camp for graduating students field work.

  • SGP had involvement of community projects in Maputo Game Reserve, Mahel Community Game Farm, Limpopo Transborder-National Park (adjacent to the Kruger National Park in South Africa), Zinave National Park, Bazaruto Archipelago National Park, Marromeu Game Reserve, Gorongosa National Park, Matibane Forest Reserve, Quiimbas Archipelago National Park, Niassa Game Reserve, and Lake Niassa/Malawi Reserve; these activities involved collaborative management of natural resources
