The long-term strategic objective of the Community Development Programme is to promote economic growth and development for local communities living adjacent to the TFCAs, based on the sustainable use of natural resources.

This will include the provision of alternative livelihoods, the implementation of viable and sustainable community-based agriculture for food security, alternative energy sources, reproductive health programmes, conservation and tourism-related projects and securing business opportunities arising.

The focus is on improving income and food security as tangible community benefits through partnership-based initiatives.
