Governance Program Coordinator

Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) are village lands that have been designated by their local communities for use for the conservation of wildlife and natural resources, and where the community receives benefits from the Wildlife Management Area. The village members select persons from the village to represent them in the Authorized Association and within the Board of trustees. Both these are governing organs of the Wildlife Management Area and have their responsibilities and roles to play.

 

Conservation is as much an issue about people and their attitudes as it is about wildlife. Good, transparent, and equitable governance is critical for sustainable communal natural resource management. To support this objective, it is important for the WMA management team to communicate the goals and progress of their conservation and local development objectives to the community and various stakeholders.
