Tourism Development and Management
The programme is envisioned to be a facilitative vehicle to protect, restore and promote conservation of wildlife and natural environment; to halt and reverse land degradation and biodiversity losses while providing opportunities for the AE communities as its great potential is evident; with all its diverse forms. Lands have been set aside as Conservancies by communities of AE voluntarily for the evident potential in attracting local and international tourists’ income to complement their normal traditional lifestyle of open rangelands for livestock movements.
Conservancies in Wildlife Tourism as an alternative income generating activity for community members that generate extra income. The income supports households with accumulative effects to the society at large through direct employment, leases by tour operators and sell of artifacts and provision of other provisions which promote sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work.
