Strategies and National Action Plan Linkages
Conservation planning for wide ranging species such as the cheetah and African wild dog needs to happen at the largest scale possible to ensure effective action, hence planning workshops are held at regional level initially. However, wildlife conservation policy is formulated, authorised and endorsed at the national level. The innovative approach of the range wide conservation planning process allows for planning to take place at the large scale, but to then roll out into national documents that can then be used to formulate policy and authorise action on the ground. The process involves holding national action planning workshops where the regional strategy is used as a framework to develop national action plans, ensuring that anything acheived at the national level results in conservation at the regional level as well. Perhaps more importantly, this process of rolling out the regional strategies into national action plans allow each country to create plans relevant to their particular needs and legislative framework, but which are still in line with the regional conservation needs.
This section allows you to see the linkages between the different scales of planning (regional and national) and where each range state has adapted the regional strategy to make it more relevant to them.
