Consultancy to Develop Architectural Designs
To develop architectural designs, prepare bill of quantities and specifications, and supervision for the construction of a 10 bed capacity guest house in sioma district and a 4 chalet community bush camp at Lusu on the Kwando Wildlife Dispersal Area (WDA) Community Development and Human Wildlife Conflict Mitigation Project
(Kwando WDA CD & HWCM Project).
WWF (The World Wide Fund for Nature) is an International Non-Governmental Organization that was born from a drive to conserve wildlife and wetlands in the country. Our mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. The Kwando River WDA is the largest of the KAZA TFCA WDAs, extending through four of the five KAZA Partner States namely: Angola, Botswana, Namibia and Zambia.
The most significant conservation challenges faced on the Zambian component of the Kwando WDA are; a) Increasing human wildlife conflicts due to the recovering elephant and other carnivore’s populations, b) High poverty levels and high reliance on rain fed agriculture on inherently poor soils with low crop yields which is sensitive to climate change impacts despite availability of appreciable amounts of water for irrigation from the Zambezi River and its perennial tributaries, c ) Limited capacity of Community Resources Boards (CRBs) and d) High poaching levels of wildlife species and the largely unabated illegal harvesting of high value timber species such as Zambezi Teak and Rose wood which has caused depletion of the species in the Forest Reserves.
Therefore, the Kwando WDA CD & HWCM Project is designed to address the challenges mentioned above through strengthening Community Based Conservation by improving benefits streams for community livelihoods and increasing acceptance of wildlife conservation as a land use option in the Zambian component of the Kwando WDA by December 2023.
