Conservation Approach

Partnership between WCS and PPF allowed to target the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area (GLTFCA)— comprising Kruger National Park (KNP) in South Africa, Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe, Limpopo National Park (LNP) and the Greater Libombos Conservancy (GLC) in Mozambique.


Establish trilateral cooperation between the governments of Viet Nam, Mozambique, and South Africa to investigate and prosecute wildlife crimes;

Enhance information sharing between the Governments of Viet Nam, Mozambique, and South Africa;

Seek closer cooperation by strengthening and improving existing legal coordinating mechanisms.



 Less use of the amount addressed to the PPF Subaward;

COVID-19 pandemic; 

Weak sharing of information from VietNam Government.


Cooperation mechanisms (i.e., MOUs and treaties) established between the Governments of South Africa, Mozambique and Viet Nam; Increasing of arrests on IWT;  Increasing of sharing information.
