What is the Community Conservation Fund of Namibia?

The Community Conservation Fund of Namibia is a Conservation Trust Fund.

A Conservation Trust Fund is a “private, legally independent grantmaking institution that provides sustainable financing for biodiversity conservation” (Conservation Finance Alliance, 2008).

The Community Conservation Fund of Namibia has been established as a sustainable funding mechanism for CBNRM-targeted* conservation efforts as we advance from the current phase of donor-supported development to a permanent state of self-finance and sustainability.
