The Peace Parks Foundation envisions the establishment of a network of protected areas that links ecosystems across international borders. Peace Parks Foundation is a not-for-profit organization. Its mission is to facilitate the establishment of transfrontier conservation areas (peace parks) and develop human resources, thereby supporting sustainable economic development, the conservation of biodiversity and regional peace and stability. The establishment and development of peace parks is a dynamic, exciting and multi-faceted approach to jointly manage natural resources across political boundaries. It is an exemplary process of partnerships between governments and the private sector - an African success story that will ensure peace, prosperity and stability for generations to come. By its very nature it is a process led by governments and supported by organisations such as Peace Parks Foundation. Peace parks are about co-existence between humans and nature, about promoting regional peace and stability, conserving biodiversity and stimulating job creation by developing nature conservation as a land-use option. Southern Africa's peace parks today incorporate over half of the declared conservation estate in the region. These areas are astounding in their extent (collectively measuring some 800 000 km²) and in their natural magnificence, rich biodiversity and cultural significance. The establishment of each peace park is complex and far-reaching, involving many stakeholders. The typical process involves three distinct phases of activity, which can take many years to achieve. Peace Parks Foundation facilitates each of the development phases, which includes engendering political support, promoting joint planning and management structures, boosting good governance and capacity building, and optimising the delivery pipeline to ensure donor funding finds its way to projects on the ground. Vision: Peace Parks Foundation envisages the establishment of a network of protected areas that links ecosystems across international borders. Given the proximity of the region's protected areas to each other, the possibility exists to create wildlife dispersal routes between them, or in certain instances to link them.   Mission:    Peace Parks Foundation facilitates the establishment of transfrontier conservation areas (peace parks)* and develops human resources, thereby supporting sustainable economic development, the conservation of biodiversity and regional peace and stability.
