    This publication is the first of the Innovation in Practice case-studies series produced by the SWM Programme, including technical, social, legal and institutional innovations. The first case study focuses on the partners (FAO, WCS, CIFOR-ICRAF and CIRAD) development and testing of innovative no-tech or low-tech games. Each needed to be simple and relatively quick to play, require only locally available and low cost materials, and be appropriate for players with low levels of literacy and numeracy, with little or no experience with multiplayer and role-playing games. These games can be played without technology, but they do not preclude the use of smart phones or laptop computers to capture and analyze the outcomes generated by the players. Role-playing games are fun, engaging and valuable for social learning where communities can devise strategies and learn to avoid undesired outcomes.This first case study is going to walk you through the different games developed and played in the different sites, unrevelling the importance of communities to take part in those and lessons learnt.

    The Sustainable Wildlife Management (SWM) Programme in Zimbabwe created role-playing games especially for use in Farmer Field Schools. Their primary aim is to learn about human–wildlife conflict (HWC) scenarios alongside the farmers who are most impacted by them. Role-playing games have a lot of potential, especially when the training’s performance objectives involve complex problem-solving. Participants in these games do not just observe; they actively participate in simulations that require group decision-making and interaction. The SWM Programme is funded by the European Union with co-funding from the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) and the French Development Agency (AFD). The initiative is coordinated by a dynamic consortium of four partners, namely the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Center for International Forestry Research and World Agroforestry (CIFOR-ICRAF), the French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD) and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS).
