This presentation discusses the SANREM CRSP long term research activity (LTRA-2), “An Agricultural Markets Model for Biodiversity Conservation,” in the Luangwa Valley of Zambia. The objectives are:
1. To determine the extent to which the COMACO model can be economically self-sustaining and the effectiveness of the different COMACO model components.
2. To identify and integrate new technologies into the COMACO model to improve its profitability, food security, and rural incomes.
3. To determine the extent to which the COMACO model provides self-sustaining social institutions and meaningful roles for COMACO participants.
4. To determine the extent to which the COMACO model improves biodiversity and watershed conservation.
