A Preliminary Assessment of the Natural Resources Management Capacity of Community-based Organisations in Southern Africa

Posted on 01 October 2007    
Community Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) was "born" in southern Africa in the early 1990s. Ecologists, social scientists, and public sector managers/technocrats initiated pilot programmes to grant local communities appropriate authority to manage and benefit from natural resources. The pilot programmes put in place policies, enabling legislation, and incentive mechanisms for natural resource management. WWF and other conservation organizations supported local communities with technical skills in natural resource management, organizational development, and enterprise development.
