Mwambao is proud to have been accepted to join  the Indigenous and Community Conserved Areas (ICCA) Consortium and invited to participate in the southern African platform held in Namibia in February 2016. The ICCA Consortium is an international association dedicated to promoting the appropriate recognition of and support to ICCAs (territories and areas conserved by indigenous peoples and local communities) in the regional, national and global arena.

There has been recognition of increased degradation and massive loss of natural resources in Africa under state control. Stakeholders have made calls to increase participation of indigenous communities and their knowledge systems in direct governance of natural resources.

Mwambao represented Tanzanian coastal communities when looking at threats and opportunities for ICCAs, helping to draft a national strategy for Tanzania.  It is hoped that there will be opportunities for limited levels of funding to progress the agenda through provision of small grants from UNDP in-country.
