Background

WWF (the World Wide Fund for Nature) is an International Non-Governmental Organization. Our mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.

Given the foregoing, WWF has partnered with World Rowing and other key stakeholders to establish the Kafue River and Rowing Centre (KRRC) on the banks of the Kafue River in Kafue District. The KRRC, the first of its kind, is a unique project in Zambia where conservation, research and sport unite to tackle global water issues.
