Community Markets for Conservation (COMACO) is a business that incentivises conservation and has created a market where conservation can be profitable. COMACO was designed to reward people for conserving natural resources instead of punishing them for poaching.
People who live along the border of the Lilongwe National Park go into the park to poach fish and other animals, and to fetch water. As a result, people are often killed; sometimes by elephants but more often by crocodiles and hippos.
