WWF Zambia Donates Vehicle to National Heritage Conservation Commission . . This week #WWFZambia handed over a brand new 4x4 to the #NationalHeritageConservationCommission (#NHCC). The vehicle supports declaration of the #BarotseFloodplain as a #WorldHeritageCulturalLandscape. The vehicle donation was commemorated by signing of a vehicle usage agreement between WWF Zambia, represented by Country Director @nachilala.nkombo and NHCC, represented by Executive Director #CollinsChipote. . . The #UpperZambeziCatchment covers critical habitats such as #westlunganationalpark, @liuwaplainnationalpark & the Barotse Floodplain. The Catchment encompasses Mwinilunga District in Northwestern Province & extends south to Senanga District in Western Province (north of the #NgoyeFalls The Barotse Floodplain is a culturally evolved landscape based on the construction of homesteads, royal graves & canals for transportation, land drainage, flood control & agricultural activity, all achieved through traditional management systems that have stood through time. If #Zambia succeeds in getting the Barotse Floodplain declared a World Heritage Cultural Landscape, Zambia will have an opportunity to promote stewardship in the management and governance of natural resources. #WorldHeritage status confers a number of advantages such as: •International recognition & attention •Tourism & socio-economic development for communities •Fundraising opportunities to support sustainable development •Improved management of fishing, agriculture, & forestry resources.
