One of the main outputs of a joint initiative to integrate social and rights-based principles in conservation is a training package that is now available on an open access basis in print and online.
The TBA was one of four partner organisations from the Cambridge Conservation Initiative who developed the new training material as part of a project dubbed INTRINSIC (Integrating Rights and Social Issues in Conservation). TBA also designed and led the training of 20 conservation professionals from six African countries in key social and rights-based dimensions to conservation.
Demand for training in this area is growing, and the INTRINSIC package will help to build the capacity of conservation managers to work more effectively with local communities. “This fills a big gap; the trainers’ guide is a great resource.” says TBA Director, Rosie Trevelyan,
