BUILD Synthesis Report

From 2011-2015, CSF engaged in a comprehensive global initiative through the Biodiversity Understanding in Infrastructure and Landscape Development (BUILD) program of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). This report highlights key elements of this multi-year, multi-continent set of infrastructure related projects, and includes an appendix of all activities by region.

Examining park fees in Tanzania

Last year, CSF collaborated with Tanzania National Parks(TANAPA) on an analysis to help the country set its park entrance fees. The study looked at the relationship between expected visitation and entrance fee levels, and found that price sensitivity varies widely by park. The study’s recommendations considered these differences, as well as visitors’ perceptions about a range of issues related to fees, management decisions, and park conditions. Implementation of the study’s recommendations would generate a predicted 25% increase in revenues – providing much needed funds for park management – without negatively effecting visitation.

Demand for visits to Tanzania's national parks

Tanzania’s system of 16 national parks includes some of the most famous natural places on earth such as Serengeti and Kilamanjaro, as well as many lesser-known areas that are equally spectacular. The park system is managed by Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA), which funds activities solely through revenue generated from tourism; it does not receive any government funds. With tourism currently Tanzania’s second largest contributor to gross domestic product (GDP), effective management of the parks system is vital for both wildlife and the country’s economy.
