COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT FOR THE MANAGEMENT AND CONSERVATION OF SERENGETI ECOSYSTEM.
COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT FOR THE MANAGEMENT AND CONSERVATION OF SERENGETI ECOSYSTEM.
Project’s Primary Objective:

To involve local communities adjacent to the Serengeti National Park in the protection of wildlife resources through community participation approach.

Implementation Strategies:

1. Sensitize local communities to refrain from poaching and collusion to poaching
2. Train school children to hate poaching and learn how to report incidences of poaching
3. Improving livelihoods of unemployed youths through income generation activities (IGAs) of their choices.

Project sustainability strategies:

1. Sensitization is a tool that can produce behavioral change, which will last for a lifetime
2. Training is investment in human capital. This also lasts to perpetuity
3. IGAs generate income, which address income poverty and improves livelihoods. Income generations serve as an incentive which may last long.

Anticipated Project results:

• Threats attributed to local communities such as wildfire, habitat degradation, blockage of wildlife corridors and poaching will be significantly reduced.
• School children will grow with conservation attitude. They will grow to become better protectors of wildlife resources during their adulthood.
• Relationship between local communities and National Park Authorities will be improved
• A sustainability plan for management and conservation of Serengeti ecosystem that is acceptable by Park Authorities and local communities will be developed and used to guide development activities around the national park
• Livelihoods of unemployed youths will be improved as a result of IGAs.
