Integrated and sustainable management of water resources
Peace Parks Foundation?
Africa's rangelands cover 43% of the continent and support an estimated 40 million pastoralists. Unfortunately, 90% of these rangelands are degraded, with destroyed water catchment functions, resulting in people becoming trapped in poverty and increasingly turning to already pressurised wildlife resources to sustain livelihoods. These challenges are prevalent in Mozambique, especially in LNP where communities live in and around a semi-arid, drought prone protected area.
The H4H programme is being implemented to support communities to adopt sustainable grazing and livestock management practices that are wildlife friendly. This proposal is aimed at supplying water points in key areas that are zoned for grazing but have limited water access. In so doing, it can serve as an incentive for the implementation of planned grazing that can support livestock of resettled communities away from sensitive riparian areas and contact with crops and wildlife.
