CCFA presents prize at Conversation Lab during ‘We Are Africa 2019’ | Phoenix Sun

It is often forgotten that across Africa, more than 70 percent of wild animals live outside national parks.
As a result, human-wildlife conflict becomes a daily occurrence for rural communities leading to a disregard for wildlife conservation efforts.
This issue alongside others will take centre stage at the Conservation Lab as part of ‘We Are Africa 2019’, taking place from May 13 to 16 in Cape Town, South Africa.
As part of this year’s involvement in the Conservation Lab, the Community Conservation Fund Africa (CCFA) will sponsor the attendance of 10 community leaders representing rural communities from five African countries, as well as award USD $25,000 to the winning project from the Conservation Lab.

This prize will recognise the effort of a local organisation that tackles issues as animal poaching, diminishing water supplies, wildlife conservation as well as the well-being of people and their communities.
The CCFA was created in 2018 as part of a partnership between Accor and Mantis to reinforce wildlife conservation efforts in Africa.
Over the past year alone, it has already donated more than $500,000 to approved community projects across the region.
Members of the CCFA board include Adrian Gardiner, founder of Mantis and long-time conversationalist, Graham Boynton, leading UK journalist and environmental activist, Craig Erasmus, vice president, operations Sub Saharan Africa for Accor and Mark Willis, chief executive officer Middle East and Africa Accor.
The ‘Conservation Lab’ is an invitation-only event held annually, which brings together 150 leaders from key sections of conservation, travel, technology, behavioral sciences, philanthropy and government, to encourage creative thinking and collaborative partnerships.
