Conservation and Rational Utilisation of Sudan-Sahelian Ecosystems (Phase ii) – CURESS II


Located in the centre of Bahr Salamat Faunal Reserve, Zakouma National Park (ZNP) was created in 1963. One of the last intact ecosystems of Central and Western Africa, the Park was conceived as a buffer zone. The consortium assisted ZNP and its peripheral zone to capitalize on the sustainable management system at ecological, financial, institutional and social level.

With the objectives to maintain the quality of environment and reconcile the population with natural resources management criteria, the project advised on sustainable financing and effective management systems , on conservation of biodiversity and ecosystems functions. The consortium supported the development of scientific research in life sciences and initiated eco tourism destination development. Activities for recreation, environmental awareness raising and education as well as advanced training were implemented. Social and economic conditions based on the sustainable management of natural resources improved - as reflected in household revenues and social orgnisation.
