More than a decade of work by a tripartite relationship between the spirit mediums, the chiefs and the veterans of the liberation struggle in trying to resuscitate the indigenous visions of the indigenous peoples of Zimbabwe in management of natural resources has established important issues that are key to sustainable agriculture practices and natural resources management. Based on this alliance between the spirit mediums, chiefs and veterans of the liberation struggle an institution known as Association of Zimbabwe Traditional Environmental Conservationists (AZTREC) was formed in 1985. Since its formation the organization has been implementing community based natural resources management projects using local knowledge, culture and cosmovision. The organization has therefore been accredited to fully implement the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD).
