Strengthen local involvement in decision-making about the management of three Eastern Afromontane key biodiversity areas by supporting fully inclusive and representative elections for the establishment of the Nsama Community Resource Board (CRB) and provide training to this CRB to contribute to ongoing efforts in the protection of Zambia's Nsumbu National Park and Tondwa Game Management Area, as well as the waters of Lake Tanganyika. The CRB provides a legal and institutional mechanism for shared responsibilities for conserving and managing wildlife areas in Zambia and consists of representatives of Village Action Groups.

Strategic Direction: 2 Improve the protection and management of the KBA network throughout the hotspot.
