Can strengthening communities’ roles in wildlife management help conservation?

The one-day Wildlife Forum will address challenges and opportunities in sustainable wildlife management, showcasing the experiences of countries, organizations, indigenous peoples, and local communities in addressing poverty alleviation and livelihood security issues while safeguarding the world’s rich and diverse wildlife.

Community involvement is essential for a successful sustainable wildlife management. Issues on land tenure and governance will be discussed, introducing some of the approaches on community-based management of the wildlife resources.
