Workshop #2

A CBNRM workshop and writeshop was conducted to initiate development of curricular materials for a significant number of universities and colleges in the Southern African region. Additionally, to provide a synergistic relationship between Africa and Latin America within the context of issues related to: People, Communities, Parks, Natural Resources Management, Development, Governance and Policy. This relationship was established with the recent conference entitled Bridging Conservation and Development in Latin America and Africa held in January 2010 at the University of Florida.

The workshop was co-sponsored by South Africa National Parks-SANParks.

Workshop Objectives

The workshop had multiple objectives and was designed to obtain broad stakeholder input into the early phase of the project implementation.

  • To examine and bridge conservation and development issues: Africa and Latin America
  • To develop materials for the book entitled, “Foundations of CBNRM”
  • To allocate authorships for respective chapters and themes

The objectives were designed to obtain broad stakeholder input in curriculum development materials. Overall, it was envisaged to produce five texts targeted towards Bachelor and Master’s Degree Levels. Additionally, the “Foundation of CBNRM” will be an introductory book that can be used for all levels including the College Level. Also, a manual on the “Principles and Management of CBNRM” will be developed for the Private Sector to be used in a Short Course Certificate Program.

  1. Foundations of CBNRM
  2. Micro, Meso and Macro Governance of CBNRM
