Strengthening Protected Areas Network in Southern Tanzania

Summary

SPANEST
Rangers training at Ruaha National Park

Tanzania is a major repository of globally significant biodiversity, ranking amongst the top countries in tropical Africa in terms of the number of distinct eco-regions represented and in species richness. The high turn over of biodiversity across the country presents a challenge to conservation managers as it means large areas need to be managed so as to conserve the full range biodiversity. Protected Areas(PAs)  provide  the principle means for protecting  the countries biodiversity values.

Objective:

The project aims to increase the effectiveness of the National Parks in protecting biodiversity and provide  the long term ecological, social and financial sustainability of that system
