• The Zambian Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DPNW)
    The Zambian Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW), under the Ministry of Tourism, works to protect and conserve Zambia’s wildlife estates and improve the quality of life among communities, while maintaining healthy biodiversity. African Parks began its work with the DNPW in Liuwa Plain National Park in 2003 and in the Bangweulu Wetlands in 2008. Mr Andrew Chomba is the current Acting Director of the DNPW.
  • The Community Resources Boards (CRBs)
    The Community Resources Boards (CRBs) are the principal community partners in the management of Bangweulu Wetlands. The six Resource Boards are composed of democratically elected community members from Village Action Groups in the six Chiefdoms of Bangweulu. These community members represent the wider community of the wetland and ensure that key stakeholders are directly involved in management of the area.
