dc.description.abstract Since the end of white minority rule in southern Africa in the 1990s, transfrontier conservation initiatives have become the dominant conservation strategy in the region and have received international support. This dissertation focuses on the Kavango Zambezi TFCA involving Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The general objectives of TFCAs - conservation of biodiversity, socio-economic and tourism development and peaceful political cooperation - have been under scrutiny. Literature has paid attention to these TFCAs because of the promises made by supporters of these initiatives on the one hand, and reports and experiences on the ground that suggests that there are political and economic interests in TFCAs, on the other hand. Critical literature has highlighted the effects of TFCAs on local populations. This dissertation addresses two research questions, the first being the rationale for Angola's involvement in the Kavango Zambezi TFCA initiative and the country's modes of participation. Second, it seeks to highlight the place of local communities in this initiative and how it affects these populations. en_ZA
