Peace Parks Foundation

Established in 1997, the objective of Peace Parks Foundation (PPF) is to facilitate the establishment of Transfrontier Conservation Areas (TFCAs) throughout southern Africa. TFCAs protect large scale ecosystems and conserve biodiversity while at the same time using conservation as a land-use option to alleviate poverty. This is achieved by harnessing the potential for ecotourism development, which is the fastest growing industry worldwide, to provide sustainable economic growth and foster community development initiatives which ensure benefit flows to local communities. This economic potential of TFCAs becomes a mechanism for people to help themselves, by forming public-private partnerships and utilising their natural resources to their benefit without damaging biodiversity, and thereby gives communities a reason to project their natural resources.
