Connecting Conservation and Development: Using Social Accountability Tools to Improve Locally Led Natural Resource Management
Social accountability methods contribute to effective and equitable conservation and development strategies, and they can strengthen conditions that help prevent corruption by creating spaces that enable citizen users to hold local leaders and government agency duty-bearers accountable.
As part of the CARE-WWF Alliance webinar series, this one-hour learning session was delivered with the TNRC project and CARE International’s Inclusive Governance team, to learn from experiences in implementing social accountability approaches and how they can be part of strategies to improve governance and reduce the impact of corruption on community-level conservation efforts.
The session was moderated by Althea Skinner (Lead Specialist, Socially Inclusive Conservation – CARE-WWF Alliance). Panelists included Liz Hart (TNRC Chief of Party – WWF-US), Lindsay Alexander (Head of Inclusive Governance for CARE’s global network) and Abid Gulzar (CARE Senior Governance Advisor – Asia and Pacific).
