Zamani Development Network specializes in Development for nations but this also includes particular focus and expertise in Conservancy both terrestrial and marine, with our IQBL (Integrated Quadruple Bottom Line) model we ensure not only that a practical conservation plan is put in place but that it is led with the focus on local communities and government to allow not only sustainable Conservation but also inclusive benefit for everyone involved.
To survive, the world’s remaining natural landscapes need to prove their economic, social and political case. New and adapted business models need to be engineered to actively support biodiversity conservation. This should be combined with generating sustainable profits.
The Zamani team has extensive knowledge and working experience with Oman and East Africa particularly Tanzania and Kenya.
Zamani is also partnered with leaders in the fields of renewal energy and water management.
Zamani supports a group of like-minded people from the Kwanini Foundation and who run Manta Resort in Pemba. They are consciously, continuously, asking the question ‘why’ - Kwanini? The Kwanini Foundation focus is primarily Pemba, and what the island and community needs to continue to thrive as a natural, cultural island paradise.
Their approach to knowledge and involvement- empowering the people of Pemba to be part of the decision-making process through taking part in a Public-Private-Community-Partnership approach to managing natural resources and involving as many people as possible in their activities. Enabling the people to do what they need to do, to create a bright future for themselves by providing them with necessary support tools and the knowledge to use them.
Article: Wildlife conservation and protection of important ecosystems from the national parks in Kenya and Tanzania to the marine protected areas at the coast, faces a renewed crisis following the collapse of ecotourism during the Corona virus pandemic.
Several private Wildlife conservation organisations (see attached) that rely heavily on funding from tourism establishments (safari camps/lodges, beach resorts, water-sports and dive centres) will be forced to reduce staff or even shut down operations completely, after border closures and worldwide travel restrictions abruptly stopped millions of Dollars of tourism related income.
The economic consequences of the Covid-19 lockdown in many countries raise fears of a surge in poaching, deforestation for charcoal burning, illegal fishing in life sustaining ecosystems, with thousands of jobs lost or at risk in the tourism sector.
