Year 2019 Zimbabwe


WWF partnered with staff from Greenline Africa, a local community-based organization, to conduct 44 interviews (25 women, 19 men) near Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe’s Matabeleland North province. This part of the country lies within the Kavango Zambezi (KAZA) Transfrontier Conservation Area. Established in 2011, it is the largest transboundary conservation area in the world, spanning five countries in southern Africa. KAZA is home to the largest population of African elephants. As a result, human-wildlife conflict is an ongoing problem for the farming communities that live here — one which is exacerbated by climate related shocks and stressors.
