    Methodology - Diagnostic tool for assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the national legal framework - Sustainable Wildlife Management (SWM) Programme
    SWM methodology series. March 2021
    2021
    Also available in:

    This methodology was developed to contribute to the improvement of the Sustainable Wildlife Management (SWM) Programme's legal work. It helps conducting an analysis on the coherence and potential legal gaps of the national legal framework in the different sectors governing the meat and fish value chains, both farmed and wild, as well as in other sectors relating to wildlife, such as ecotourism. The SWM Programme is an initiative of the Organisation of African, Caribbean, and Pacific States (OACPS), which is funded by the European Union (EU) and co-financed by the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) and the French Development Agency (AFD). It is being implemented by a dynamic consortium of four partners with expertise in wildlife conservation and food security: · Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) · Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) · French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD) · Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) For further information: www.swm-programme.info

    Effective policy and legal advice requires a clear understanding of the gaps and discrepancies in the policies and legislation pertaining to gender and land. This paper introduces a Legal Assessment Tool (LAT) for gender-equitable land tenure, developed under the Gender and Land Rights Database (GLRD) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), for the purpose of providing prompt, targeted and effective policy and legal advice to countries working towards gender-equitab le land tenure. It describes the main features of a tool specifically designed to measure the extent to which the legal framework fosters gender-equitable land tenure and provides the results from the application of the LAT to three African countries – Sierra Leone, Madagascar and Morocco. It further reflects on the added value of such a tool in the broader context of rural development and poverty alleviation, with a special focus on the implementation of the VGGTs.

    Methodology - Tool for mapping relevant normative instruments- Sustainable Wildlife Management (SWM) Programme
    SWM methodology series: March 2021
    2021
    Also available in:

    This document provides a detailed mapping of the legal framework of interest and allows an overview of its structure. This facilitates the identification of potential obstacles to legal certainty including the ambiguity of repealing provisions, the lack of mechanisms to implement policies and/or laws as well as the existence of obsolete normative texts. The use of the tool is the preliminary step to any in-depth analysis of statutory law. The analyses will be carried out based on the other Sustainable Wildlife Management (SWM) Programme legal diagnostic tools, namely for reviewing domestication of international conventions, assessing strengths and weaknesses of the national legal framework, and assessing the enforcement and implementation of wildlife-related legislation. The SWM Programme is an initiative of the Organisation of African, Caribbean, and Pacific States (OACPS), which is funded by the European Union (EU) and co-financed by the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) and the French Development Agency (AFD). It is being implemented by a dynamic consortium of four partners with expertise in wildlife conservation and food security: · Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) · Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) · French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD) · Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) For further information: www.swm-programme.info
