Peace Parks Foundation prides itself on its financial management skills and has successfully implemented over 150 projects since inception. The Foundation's Projects section manages funding specifically allocated to the various projects.
The Foundation has a unique policy of not requiring a management fee from donors. Where a management fee is applicable, 100% of the funding is allocated to appointing staff in the project area to assist with implementation. This approach is unique and allows the Foundation to only become involved in projects that meets its criteria and not because management or administration fees dictated it.
The Foundation furthermore has a policy of transparency. Proposals are always developed with the mandate and support of partner countries and their conservation agencies. A letter of support from the respective partners is also requested to ensure ownership and buy-in once a funding application to a prospective donor has been successful.
The criteria for the Foundation to become involved in any project firstly relates to the mandate it received from the partner countries. Secondly, whether the intervention is deemed critical or essential to the success of a particular TFCA.
This implies that the Foundation may become involved in a diverse range of projects, but always with the same objective in mind. Projects include conservation infrastructure, community development and benefits, wildlife translocations and the development of wildlife dispersal routes, the rehabilitation and development of protected areas, improving access to these areas, and supporting the development of sustainable financing mechanisms.
