Community-based management strategies for biocultural diversity conservation

COMBIOSERVE is a consortium of ten institutions working together to assess the effectiveness of community-based management strategies for biocultural diversity. Using a multi-disciplinary and participatory research strategy, the consortium seeks to identify the conditions and principles for successful community-based conservation initiatives in selected locations in Brazil, Bolivia and Mexico.

 

How we work: members of the consortium are collaborating to carry out research on different aspects of community-based management strategies, including participatory biodiversity monitoring, land use change, traditional knowledge and institutions, policy networks and governance, and household adaptive capacity and resilience. In addition, we are exploring the implementation of a co-enquiry approach, by adapting relevant and applicable 'conventional' research methods and approaches to produce community-based participatory research protocols. read more
