TAGS: SENV ECON ZI
SUBJECT: KUDOS FOR HARARE 863

REF: HARARE 863

Kudos to Embassy Harare for its comprehensive assessment of
the current negative environmental impacts on wildlife and
forestry in Zimbabwe due to the ongoing political and
economic strife in the country (Harare 863). Natural
resource conservation is an OES top priority in Africa. The
cable clearly and succinctly highlights the close
relationship between poor governance and weak democratic
institutions with environmental degradation and impunity for
the offenders. The dire economic situation of the Zimbabwean
people in turn, contributes to increased deforestation,
poaching, hunting and trafficking in endangered species.
Great job again in highlighting the direct link between good
governance and natural resource conservation.
