LCA positively influence, accelerate and bring about the protection of biodiversity, focussing on rainforests and selected ecosystems in sub-Saharan Africa.
Leadership for Conservation in Africa
The Leadership for Conservation in Africa (LCA) uses a business approach to initiate conservation-led socio-economic development in Africa. Our vision is to positively influence, accelerate and bring about the protection of rainforests and selected ecosystems in Sub-Saharan Africa.
We focus on four key impact areas:
Protection of Nature through Private Initiatives
In line with the LCA Vision, we work in close collaboration with governments and various conservation organisations to influence, accelerate and bring about the protection and development of selected parks and reserves in Africa. Conservation commerce is a particular niche-area of the LCA
Rejuvenating through ShareScreen Africa
ShareScreen Africa is a digital initiative launched in August 2021 by the LCA. Academics, researchers, conservation specialists and practitioners, from all over the world, are requested to freely “donate their time” to share their knowledge with others within the African context.
Enriching Country Curricula through EduConservation
In collaboration with the Sabine Plattner African Charities (SPAC), we are piloting curricula-enrichment programs in six Africa countries. By seeking a natural fit within the existing curriculum, Afro-centric nature conservation content is developed, evaluated, tested and re-tested within the local schools, in collaboration with the Department of Education.
Supporting Community Conservation through MyPlanet.green
In collaboration with the PAMS Foundation, Myplanet.green has developed a pioneering platform to ensure that those people who stay in or around protected areas become the true conservationists, protecting their own natural assets and heritage. Through Myplanet.green, even the smallest of donors could contribute to community-based nature conservation projects.
