The Conference on Wildlife and Forestry Governance was organised by LWT and CEPA and funded by UNDP and the ICCF Group. It was attended by 50+ representatives from the Malawi Parliamentary Conservation Caucus, development partners, CSO’s and the Departments of Wildlife, Forestry, Energy, Environmental Affairs and Foreign Affairs.
This forum addressed forestry and wildlife governance issues together for the first time, in particular the overlaps and similarities in terms of associated challenges and potential solutions. The MPCC caucus model has also helped to facilitate engagement and open discussions between Members of Parliament, Government departments and CSO’s. The action plan developed is being taken forward by the MPCC.
