THE ACNN’S PRACTICAL ACTIVITY – THE LAGRI PROJECT

As the ACNN is launched, it is important to demonstrate the organization’s commitment to practical interventions within Niassa. As such, the LAGRI initiative, a landscape-scale integrated resource management project, is being developed as the ACNN’s initial flagship project. The ACNN can immediately begin to influence the successful development of LAGRI, through a demonstration of common purpose involving practical collaboration to impact community prosperity, government support, funding and market development.

LAGRI – Our Goal

We envision the strategic management of resources in the area to allow for significant social and environmental stability, offering a long-term scenario of security within the Western buffer to the Niassa Reserve The desired outcomes would, over time, include a complete cessation of forest degradation, improved local prosperity and a stable economic zone within the periphery of the Niassa Reserve.

The LAGRI landscape has been chosen as it represents a valuable demonstration geography, adjacent to the Niassa Reserve, that can serve as a “learning lab” where intervention models within agriculture, natural forest management and conservation will be tested before further replication. Landscapes encompass interconnected natural resource regions with similar environmental and ecological characteristics that transcend administrative boundaries. A landscape approach examines such larger areas to more fully recognize natural resource conditions and trends, natural and human influences, opportunities for resource conservation, restoration, and economic development.
