The main purpose of establishing the conservancy was to undertake wildlife conservation and management programs develop tourism business as a means to enhance local livelihoods, and, boost livestock production. This remains the main motivation for the continued existence of the conservancy. However, since its inception, the conservancy has suffered governance and managerial challenges and inadequate community benefits. In late 2017, AWF partnered with USAID and KWCA to implement a program seeking to address these challenges. As a result of this partnership, a Conservation and Management Plan for the conservancy has been developed to “Provide a practical framework for improving livelihoods of LUMO Community based on sustainable use and conservation of the conservancy’s outstanding natural resources and biodiversity essential for the social and economic development of the area.”
