The Zambezi region of Namibia is rich in wildlife, riparian forests, woodlands, rivers, and wetlands, and the associated rich biodiversity of these habitats. It lies at the heart of the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA): an area of over 520 000 km2 established through a Treaty signed by five member states (Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe). Yet, of all the regions it is the one that is most under pressure from potentially conflicting land use demands. It receives the highest annual rainfall in the country and is virtually surrounded by perennial rivers, making it the logical target for agricultural development in an otherwise arid country.
