    Co-developing a community camera trapping programme to deliver benefits of living with wildlife 2022

    No results found.

    In Tanzania, in collaboration with communities impacted by large carnivores such as lions, hyaenas and leopards, this case study highlights how a community camera trapping programme was co-developed between the local communities and the NGO Lion Landscapes to deliver benefits to the local communities living with wildlife. The case study focuses on the Rungwa-Ruaha landscape in Tanzania, which is one of the most important wildlife areas in Africa and it supports one of the world’s largest remaining populations of lions and globally significant populations of African wild dogs, cheetahs, leopards and spotted hyaenas. In 2015, the Ruaha Carnivore Project’s research project initiated a community camera trapping programme to create greater links between community benefits and the presence of wildlife in the area. The camera trapping programme has been successful in two ways: not only has it provided data on the wildlife populations present on village land, but it has also engaged and benefited the community, incentivising conservation. While previously, the villages received benefits from the project, now the villagers recognise that the benefits are received because of the wildlife present on their land.

    Reducing human-carnivore conflict through participatory research 2022

    The Sustainable Wildlife Management (SWM) Programme in Guyana aims to ensure that wildlife, ecosystems, and their services are conserved and the living conditions, food security, and cultural identity of rural villages are improved. Under one component of the SWM Programme, local beneficiaries led by the Rupununi Livestock Producers Association (RLPA) had identified that human-wildlife conflict was a significant issue in the region, requiring specific and urgent attention. This case study focuses on the Rupununi region, in Guyana, in which the presence of forested islands creates edge habitats for many wildlife species, such as jaguar, tapir, capybara, harpy eagle. In Guyana, the SWM Programme is working with the local communities to reduce human-carnivore conflict by conducting participatory research with the impacted stakeholders, following a community rights-based approach to ensure that indigenous peoples and local communities were fully involved in project design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of the program. In collaboration with the communities, the SWM Programme has identified several gaps in understanding the situation to address it successfully. It is working together to fill these gaps before using the information to identify management strategies that can be implemented in the region by all parties.

    The contribution of women in small-scale fisheries to healthy food systems and sustainable livelihoods in Malawi 2023
    Also available in:

    The Gender Brief is tailored to provide insight into the contributions of women in small-scale fisheries to healthy food systems and sustainable livelihoods in Malawi. Approximately 70 000 women in Malawi depend on small-scale fisheries for their livelihoods, mostly in the post-harvest sector. Pervasive gender norms limit women’s opportunities and decision-making power at household and community levels, as they face many gender-based constraints in fisheries value chains and they are more vulnerable to intersecting factors such as poverty and gender-based violence. Targeted actions should be undertaken to address gender inequalities and support women’s empowerment in the Malawian fisheries sector, including fostering women’s participation into local government agencies, supporting the formalization of women’s groups and organizations working in the fisheries sector and increasing women’s access to gender-responsive financial services and credit schemes.
