Theory of change
To achieve its vision of flourishing indigenous species and ecosystems that support sustainable livelihoods in Southern Africa, the Centre seeks to target law, policy and the institutions that formulate and implement these laws and policies. It aims to do this by influencing the design of law and policy, so that law and policy prioritise the preservation and restoration of indigenous ecosystems and species, influencing decision-making to do the same, and collaborating with civil society organisations, communities and other stakeholders.
