Jamma Joins the International
Conservation Caucus Foundation Group

News and Insights

Jamma is thrilled to announce a new partnership with the International Conservation Caucus Foundation (ICCF) Group, a global organisation dedicated to advancing conservation governance and providing on-the-ground solutions. Jamma was introduced as the newest member of ICCF’s U.S. Conservation Council at a Congressional Members luncheon in Washington, D.C. in March 2024.

ICCF operates with a mission to build political will and support effective conservation policies worldwide. Through its extensive network of policymakers, wildlife experts, NGO leaders, and industry stakeholders, ICCF catalyses action to address pressing environmental challenges. ICCF supports 26 conservation caucuses around the world, including the U.S. Congressional Caucuses on International Conservation, Oceans, and Senate Climate Solutions. As well as the All-Party Parliamentary Group on International Conservation in the UK, and parliamentary groups across southern Africa.

By joining forces with ICCF, Jamma aims to amplify its impact in the conservation public policy space. Through collaborative efforts, both organisations seek to promote sustainable practices, protect biodiversity, and empower local communities to safeguard natural resources.

For example, ICCF has been a leading advocate for the U.S. Foundation for International Conservation Act. This bill, which recently passed out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, would establish an independent foundation to invest up to $2 billion in public-private investments over the next decade in management of protected and conserved areas.

“Democracy is a key aspect to developing sustainable community-based natural resource management programs”, said Joe Goergen, International Policy & Public Affairs Specialist for Jamma. “We want to ensure that North American public policy, conservation funding, and tourism markets work for local people in southern Africa.”

Jamma recently attended the ICCF hosted international conference on the Miombo Forest Initiative, chaired by H.E. President Filipe Jacinto Nyusi of Mozambique. At this event, Mozambique, along with Ministers and other leaders from the SADC region, committed to collaborative efforts to promote local livelihoods, sustainable development, and climate change resilience through the conservation of miombo woodlands.

We thank ICCF for their policy leadership and look forward to working together towards are shared conservation goals.
