|Gap Impact Funding challenge for Africa’s conservation sector||1:00pm, 5th Dec 2023|
If you are an interested in the future of Africa’s Conservation, please join us on 5th December where we will be discussing a novel implementation model and a potential solution for the Gap Impact Funding challenge the continents conservation sector faces. Gap Impact Funding describes types of investments that seek to have a positive, long-term impact on biodiversity and conservation, but for which a clear path to profitability is typically not clear in the short-term.
Drawing from over 60 years of combined private sector experience in property development, consumer goods, front line conservation and community engagement, Rewilding Africa CIC and its partners have made it their stated goal to convert land surrounding game reserves and national parks in Africa into multiple land use, multiple revenue streams, resilient and sustainable Community Conservancies. Following first principles related to the planning, financing, development and management of a typical property development, including the incubation and setting up of conservation-based businesses within and around these Community Conservancies.
These Community Conservancies will, in effect, substantially enhance and enable biodiversity (through appropriate management and rewilding) for these landscapes, and act as thrive buffer zones, protecting the parks themselves. Community Conservancies help significantly to achieve both the Sustainable Development Goals and 30 x 30 goals stated by the United Nations and they intend unpacking potential gap impact funding solutions, including the proposed formation of a Rewilding Africa Impact Fund (RAIF).
