The Zambia CBNRM Forum was established in 2005 and launched by the Former Ministry of Tourism, Environment and Natural Resources (MTENR) with the aim to reduce poverty through community based management of natural resources.
The Forum’s focus is around creating secure livelihoods for communities in Zambia through sustainable utilisation of natural resources that includes; forestry, fisheries, water, agriculture, land and wildlife.
The ZCBNRM Forum works with organisations across Zambia to share best practice, learning and create a unilateral voice in influencing policy and government decision makers on Natural Resource Management .
The Forum has a Secretariat based at WWF’s Offices in Long Acres, Lusaka. We additionally have regional offices in Livingstone and Namwala.
