OEA implements conservation programmes built on data to design nature-based solutions. OEA strives to enhance local communities and decision-makers knowledge to identify growth strategies that benefit from utilisation of natural resources and maintain healthy ecosystems.
OEA collaborates with national and international research institutions and wildlife authorities, to develop sustainable, participated and effective strategies for natural resources conservation and management.
OEA works currently focuses in Northern Tanzania and Southern Kenya, but in several other regions OEA is an advisor and promoter of sustainable rural water management.
