Contexte
Many African ecosystems are under increasing pressure from the unsustainable use of natural resources and expanding human populations, threatening the biodiversity values and the ecosystem processes that support local human livelihoods

Objectifs
1. Implement functional decentralised and cross-sectoral mechanisms in ecosystem management for effective collaboration between diverse stakeholders.
2. Develop incentives for local communities to be responsible custodians of ecosystem resources, along with adaptive management systems based on monitoring of ecosystem health

Impact
1. Ecosystem forums with diverse stakeholders were held, and ecosystem management plans are under development with fundamental stakeholder input.
2. Land-use plans in community-managed wildlife areas have been approved and are operational. Community wildlife management areas have been officially recognised.
3. Conservation cooperatives and community tourism ventures are functioning.
4. Community income generating schemes that are compatible with conservation have been put in place
