Effectiveness of Conservation Treaties in Environmental Conservation: An Evaluation of the KAZA Transfrontier Conservation Area Treaty
Ricky Mulwanda Simfukwe
Abstract: The conversation and protection of environmental resources is a duty of all humanity. In spite of geographical borders, agreements can be reached to for the protection of environmental resources as some resources are shared by multiple countries. This study, by analysis and evaluation of the KAZA Transfrontier Conversation Area Treaty and subsequent reports from the Secretariat, academic papers and other published literature evaluated the effectiveness of the KAZA Transfrontier Conservation Area Treaty. This was to analyse whether conservation treaties can still be relied on as a tool for the conservation and protection of environmental resources. The study established that the KAZA Transfrontier Conservation Area Treaty has barely been effective in achieving the set goals of conserving and protecting the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area. However, the study shows that the treaty may achieve goals and objective though at a slower pace. This showing that environmental conservation treaties are still an integral and effective component for the conversation and protection of the environmental especially with good implementation. They are not only important and effective for the protection of environmental resources but also provide as a source for international environmental law.
