Project outline

PIMA is a three-year interdisciplinary research project which aims to discover how Tanzania's Wildlife Management Areas have changed people's lives and their effects on wildlife and the environment.

The project is an international interdisciplinary collaboration involving University College London (UCL), the University of Copenhagen, Imperial College London, the Tanzania Wildlife Research Institute, the UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre, and the Tanzania Natural Resources Forum. This website will act as a record of the project's activites and a repository of information generated.

PIMA is funded by ESPA: the Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation research programme. ESPA is a joint undertaking of the UK government's Department for International Development (DfID), the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
