dc.description.abstract CBNRM projects are meant for local people to benefit from managing and conserving natural resources around them. It is operational in the region but whether people benefit and the degree to which they do so is a matter unknown. This project looks at this matter, using Mahenye as a case study and employs Key Informant Interviews, Focus Group Discussions and questionnaires to tackle the matter. It observes that, (1) the income received is small and is declining mainly due to corruption and lack of accountability by the elite. (2) There is limited employment mainly by Chilo Safari Lodge. Some Campfire projects have also provided jobs for a small number of the local people. (3) Agriculture has been negatively impacted as food security is threatened due to crop destruction by wildlife and disease transfer from wildlife to domestic animals. It is also observed that there is competition for pastures between wild animals and domestic animals. The study recommends that there should be accountability mechanisms on income received; new projects should be created to provide income and employment. en_US
