Transboundary parks

AllAfrica.com recently republished a story from The Namibian about the proliferation of transfrontier conservation areas in southern Africa. Based on an interview with the Peace Parks Foundation, the story reports that 14 of 22 transfrontier conservation areas have been identified in the region as most viable for development, and mentions the The Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KaZa-TFCA) -- covering 280 000 square kilometres, including 22 protected areas -- among Namibia, Botswana, Angola, Zambia and Zimbabwe as unique because five countries are involved. You can read the article online, and in HOORC's library, you can read Peace parks : conservation and conflict resolution edited by Saleem H. Ali.
