Description:

Boundary-making in Conservancies: The Namibian Experience.

Summary / Notes:

Community-based natural resource management (CBNRM) programmes have spread rapidly in rural areas of the developing world as part of inte-grated conservation and economic development strategies (Blaikie 2006; Brockington, Duffy, and Igoe 2008). These programmes take many forms but, in general, have been extensively criticised in the development literatures for failing to improve the well-being of rural residents living in or near national parks and protected areas (Büscher and Arsel 2012; Büscher et al. 2012; Dressler and Büscher 2008; Dressler and Roth 2011; Igoe and Brockington, 2007; Schilcher 2007). Namibia, the case examined in this chapter, is generally considered to have one of the more progressive approaches for involving local residents in natural resource management, enabling them to derive both monetary and non-monetary benefits from their participation in these efforts (Sullivan 2003; Suich 2010; Boudreaux and Nelson 2011). Since 1996, Namibian residents of communal lands have had the right to establish communal conservancies - legally established CBNRM zones. Once a conservancy is recognised by the government, local residents receive conditional rights to prot from wildlife and tourism in exchange for managing natural resources in a manner consistent with Namibian conservation law and reporting on conservation outcomes (e.g. regular wildlife counts and monitoring of poaching) to the Ministry of Environ ment and Tourism (MET) (MET 1995; Namibian Association of Community Based Natural Resource Management Support Organisations (NACSO) (NACSO 2009).
