The Serengeti-North Luangwa Ecosystem Management Project (SLEMP) was a 5-year integrated conservation, development and landscape management initiative jointly implemented by Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS), with co-financing from the European Commissionís Programme on Tropical Forests in Developing Countries.† The project piloted the Biodiversity Conventionís Ecosystem Approach in two of Africa's outstanding savannah ecosystems, the Serengeti (Tanzania) and North Luangwa (Zambia). Activities focused on establishing inter-sectoral ecosystem cooperation mechanisms andimproving understanding of ecosystem processes. LTS provided technical inputs and capacity building into the commmunity conservation components of the Serengeti and North Luangwa Ecosystem Project.† It provided project management support, and capacity building of FZS staff and back stopping for the project, paricularly with respect to monitoring and evaluation. The project logic was assessed, as was progress on implementation of the projectís goals. Training was given on monitoring and evaluation and monitoring and evaluation plans for the Serengeti and North Luangwa components of the project were developed through participatory workshops. Key challenges were identified towards project implementation, particularly over the community conservation component, and recommendations made. Technical review and inputs were made into the design of a project to establish a trust fund mechanism for the Serengeti ecosystem.
