The Nature Conservancy’s priority in Zambia is to improve the management of the Kafue ecosystem, while also charting a course for sustainable natural resource management by implementing fire management plans that mimic natural burn cycles and providing a framework of expanding national development that does not compromise Zambia’s natural capital through Development by Design (DbD).
Working with communities, the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) and the Ministry of Mines, Energy and Water Development (MMEWD) we seek to inform better planning and coordination needed to prevent conflicts between development and conservation priorities.

Conservation Action Plan Workshop Report - Mulobezi Game Management Area. Kafue National Park is Zambia’s oldest and largest national park covering approximately 5.5 million acres. It is surrounded by nine game management areas (GMA). The Mulobezi GMA alone covers 850,000 acres and is located in the southwest corner of Kafue National Park and it is the fifth largest buffer zine in the Kafue ecosystem.
Mulobezi’s landscape is characterized by miombo woodlands that are interspersed with dambos, grassy plains and teak forests. The Mulobezi GMA faces a number of threats and this will reduce the benefits that the ecosystem provides to communities. This conservation action plan was developed with input from the Moomba council, Zambian Wildlife Authority (ZAWA), Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA), Kazungula District Commissioner, and the Kazungula District Forestry Department.
