Botswana component : integrated development plan 2013-2017
The Botswana Government has been unparalleled in her commitment to biodiversity conservation. Large tracks of pristine landscapes have been gazetted as national parks, game reserves and wildlife management areas, allowing ecosystems and natural processes to function with little or no interventions from anthropogenic activity. The country has now joined efforts with the Governments of the Republics of Angola, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe, to establish and develop a major Transfrontier Conservation Area. This transboundary initiative, known as the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA) is destined to be a premier tourism destination that incorporates large portions of the Kavango and Zambezi River Basins.
