TTWCA in collaboration with International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is implementing a USAID funded project: Sustainable Management of Tsavo Landscapes.

The five-year project aims to enhance TTWCA’s capacity on governance while implementing conservation actions for biodiversity and improved community livelihoods in the Tsavo landscape.

The SMAT project looks to strengthen TTWCA’s ability to develop a coordinated management approach with its members for enhanced local stewardship; improve benefit sharing; and support the sustainable management of natural resources within the landscape.

This will be achieved through the following outcomes:

  • Improved governance
  • Reduced threats
  • Improved biodiversity conservation
  • Increased partnerships for landscape-level economic growth and sustainability
  • Increased community and ecosystem resilience
