Transboundary Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services


This programme focus will address the following issues:

  • There is need for a paradigm shift in conservation policy toward spatially connected, inter-dependent parks and reserves to ensure long-term ecological integrity and viability of wildlife populations.

  • Developing policy incentives and institutional mechanisms for negotiating access and acquisition of portions of wildlife migration corridors currently under private ownership or public infrastructure.

  • Implementing trans-boundary management of parks and reserves will require novel policy, legal and institutional regimes to coordinate multiple stakeholders including governments, national wildlife authorities and private/communal interests.
