How can Community-Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) institutions be re-built to strengthen the social fabric of rural communities and expand the wildlife economy to address multi-dimensional poverty?
Team Status: NEW
Team Critical Challenge:
  • Develop a community of practice for CBNRM governance and economics in southern and eastern Africa to achieve measurable improvements in the conceptualization, monitoring, and performance of CBNRM at a household level.
  • Develop monitoring tools to assess and track CBNRM impact at a household level (i.e. livelihoods; governance and social capital; wildlife tolerance) and community level (commercial and managerial performance). Compare the performance of participatory and representational forms of CBNRM by institutionalizing reporting dashboards in at least five countries.
  • Use anchor sites in at least five countries to pilot participatory community-based governance,
  • Facilitate scaling of strong practice through the development of training materials, guidelines and standards, and use these to strengthen CBNRM performance through national CBNRM associations and voluntary standards.
