1. ABOUT NGO

Ntambu Community Resources Board (CRB) was established on 16 February 2009 in Chief Ntambu’s area of Mwinilunga District, Zambia. The main objective of the Board is to promote and develop an integrated approach in the management of Human, Cultural and Natural resources aspects in the Chibwika-Ntambu Game Management Area, as well as the open areas within Ntambu Chiefdom.

Since its establishment, Ntambu CRB strives to improve people’s livelihoods by promoting sustainable utilisation and management of natural resources within Ntambu Chiefdom environs.
