Worldwide people working on Community-Based Natural Resource Management Network, CBNRM.Net, 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 increasing weight 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.Net community of practice. Explore CBNRM.Net for:
