KAZA TFCA Ministers’ Meeting

Katima Mulilo – We, the Ministers responsible for coordinating matters of the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA) of the Republics of Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe, met in Katima Mulilo, Namibia, on 13th October 2022, to reflect on how our joint efforts in the development and management of KAZA TFCA are progressing.

Following the November 2021 project launch, months of careful planning and preparation, and the successful implementation of a workshop to train and select observers in Kasane in July 2022, flying for the KAZA Elephant Survey began in the Sebungwe Region of northwest Zimbabwe on the 22nd of August 2022.

Last week, the German Ambassador to Botswana and the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC), Ms. Hellweg Margitt-Böette and her counterpart in Zambia, Ms. Anne Wagner-Mitchell visited some of the projects funded by the Federal Republic of Germany in the Kavango Zambezi (KAZA) Transfrontier Conservation Area (TFCA) in Botswana and Zambia from 23 – 24 May 2022.

Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (ZimParks) anti-poaching activities have received a major boost with the procurement of three patrol boats under a one-million-Euro Covid-19 Emergency Response Package from the Federal Republic of Germany to the Republic of Zimbabwe.

Darren Potgieter was born in Nelspruit, South Africa just south of Kruger National Park, where he developed a passion for wilderness and wildlife. He has 15 years of professional experience in protected area management, having worked in Angola, Botswana, Zambia, Chad, Mozambique, and the Central African Republic, among others.

Regional stakeholders have described the 30 March launch of the Lufthansa Group’s Eurowings Discover flight from Frankfurt via Windhoek in Namibia into Victoria Falls City Zimbabwe three times a week as a major boost for tourism in the region.

Wildlife’s return symbolizes peace

Among all the National Parks in the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA), Luengue-Luiana National Park has been one of the most depleted in wildlife due to the Angolan civil war that occurred between 1975 to 2002.

At approximately 520,000 square kilometers, the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA) is the world’s largest terrestrial transfrontier conservation area.  It occupies parts of the Okavango and Zambezi River basins across the five Partner States – Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
