It is one of the first programs to consider wildlife as renewable natural resources, while addressing the allocation of its ownership to indigenous peoples in and around conservation protected areas. CAMPFIRE was initiated in 1989 by the Zimbabwean government as a program to support community-led development and sustainable use of natural resources.

A brief reflection on Zimbabwe’s forest resources and their significance to.

Concern for natural forest depletion in volume and quality has increased dramatically over the past two decades. Deforestation is mostly attributed to land clearing for agricultural expansion, fuel wood collection, overgrazing and uncontrolled fires.
