The Community-Based Natural Resource Management Network

deutsch | español | français | norsk | português

Welcome to the CBNRM global portal web site!

Worldwide people working on Community-Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM), as practitioners, managers and researchers, are increasingly requesting better communication capabilities. Such communication and networking capabilities would make it possible for people to exchange experiences, manage relevant knowledge, and support learning across countries, sectors, cultures, and languages, and in this way achieve better results. The global context for these changes includes increased emphasis on culture, local institutions, traditional knowledge, participation and participatory approaches, and NGOs and civil society, within an overall nation-state framework characterized by an increasing weight placed on decentralization, governance, and transparency.

CBNRM Net is a response to this call. It provides a powerful set of broad, robust and useful networking tools aimed at linking stakeholders. As a complete, integrated, and adaptable knowledge management tool, CBNRM Net is presented as a service to the global CBNRM community of practice. Explore CBNRM Net:
