The SWM Guyana legal hub is now online!

The Guyana legal hub is now available!  The country legal hubs are a user-friendly point of access to a comprehensive set of data and analysis on the statutory and customary and legal frameworks relating to sustainable wildlife management. This includes environmental protection, tenure rights, land use planning, the consumption (hunting and fishing) and non-consumption (ecotourism) use of wildlife, as well as animal production, animal health, and food safety and security.

In addition, you can also learn about the SWM Programme work in the Rupununi region, located in the south of Guyana. One of the outcomes of the programme is to ensure that policies and regulations enable the sustainable use of species that are resilient to hunting and fishing and to ensure the conservation of protected and threatened species.

The Khor Abu Habil Inner Delta in Sudan has officially become a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention! 

20 July 2022

The Khor Abu Habil Inner Delta in Sudan has officially become a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention! 

The RESSOURCE Project has been working with the Sudanese Wildlife administration and the local communities for over four years to support the designation of the Inner Delta of the Khor Abu Habil under the Ramsar Convention. This collaborative work has been successful, as this natural heritage has officially been designated as a wetland of international importance. 

The Khor Abu Habil Inner Delta is an inland wetland with an area of almost 950,000 hectares, located 400 kilometres southwest of Khartoum.  It is essential for hundreds of villages and hosts hundreds of thousands of migratory birds, including seven threatened species including the critically endangered Rueppell’s vulture (Gyps rueppellii) and sociable lapwing (Vanellus gregarius).

Le delta intérieur du Khor Abu Habil au Soudan est officiellement devenu une zone humide d’importance internationale, au titre de la Convention de Ramsar! 

Le Projet RESSOURCE travaille depuis plus de quatre ans avec l’administration soudanaise de la faune sauvage et les communautés locales afin de soutenir le processus de désignation du delta intérieur de Khor Abu Habil en tant que site de la Convention de Ramsar. Ces efforts collaboratifs ont porté fruits, puisque ce patrimoine naturel a officiellement été désigné comme une zone humide d’importance internationale. 

Le delta intérieur du Khor Abu Habil est une zone humide continentale de près de 950 000 hectares située à 400 kilomètres au sud-ouest de Khartoum.  Il est essentiel pour des centaines de villages et accueille des centaines de milliers d’oiseaux migrateurs, dont sept espèces menacées, notamment le vautour de Rüppell (Gyps rueppellii) et le vanneau sociable (Vanellus gregarius), tous deux en danger critique d’extinction.

The people of Miruma in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea have signed a Conservation Deed

30 June 2022

More traditional clans in the Bismarck Forest Corridor of Papua New Guinea agree on legally protecting their forest lands together.

Seven clans of the Wamiufa tribe, with a total estimated population of over 4000, have today signed a legally binding contract to protect their forest biodiversity from growing threats of over-exploitation of their forest land and wildlife.

By signing a Conservation Deed through support from the USAID-funded Lukautim Graun Project and EU-funded Sustainable Wildlife Management Programme, the communities have ratified their legal rights to protect Mount Waugareame Conservation Area of 2603 hectares.

 “The laws are our own and for it to be recognized by surrounding communities and the government body gives us pride.” said Mr. Peter Siune, one of the elders in the Wamiufa Tribe. “We are very much happy for the signing of agreement among our clans for the established conservation area," he added.

 “Serious games” are increasingly being used in projects to facilitate collective management of natural resources. They are intended to be fun, while fostering debate and collective learning. CIRAD has developed several such tools, notably TerriStories®, a participatory management game, and has substantial experience of building participatory approaches.

This led the SWM Programme team in Gabon, which is coordinated by CIRAD, to ask  experts to develop a game to help communities draft their own hunting management plans. The overall aim of the project is to involve villagers in the collective management of their wildlife resources.
