The seven components of the Trans-boundary Conservation Area Network
The Trans-boundary Conservation Area Network is based on a number of components, which constitute the framework. Focused on promoting collaborative wildlife resource use and management, the TFCA presents several components relevant for the trans-boundary conservation attainment.
Among these components include conservation area harmonization so as to converge a common understanding in decision making processes; enhancing financing mechanisms for the TFCAs through regional mobilization from within the TFCA member states; TFCA programs also contribute to capacity building of the various stakeholders involved; Establishment of both internal and external knowledge management systems for efficient information management; Enhancement of socio-economic livelihoods of member states and involved stakeholders; Disaster risk reduction and minimizing the vulnerability risks to ecosystems; and development of TFCAs into marketable tourism ventures and products. Boundless Southern Africa, an international NGO within the Southern African states is in lead co-ordination of the joint tourism development venture.
The TFCA program is not only focused on collaborative resource conservation but also fostering the socio-economic welfare of the member states, stakeholder and communities adjacent to the se particular resources. The overall merit is an appreciation a d recognition of individual efforts towards the success of the conservation pool.
