Local Livelihoods in Zambia

MFUWE, ZAMBIA - JUNE 2007. When food is scarce, many of the local people in Zambia traditionally turn to subsistence hunting and poaching for meat to eat, sell, or trade. They also cut down trees for charcoal production. WCS has been working in Zambia since the early 1980s. An economic program, Community Markets for Conservation (COMACO) provides sustainable sources of alternative incomes, such as farming, and other incentives for conservation to families living around the Luangwa Valley.
