Webinar: Connecting Conservation and Development: Using Social Accountability Tools to Improve Locally Led Natural Resource Management
January 27, 2022
8:00am - 9:00am EST
About the event
As part of the CARE-WWF Alliance webinar series, a one-hour learning session will be delivered in collaboration with WWF’s USAID-funded Targeting Natural Resource Corruption 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.
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.
This webinar on 27 January 2022 will share lessons, best practices, and challenges in implementing social accountability approaches in the natural resource management sector. The Alliance’s goal is to support social accountability efforts and their role in promoting responsive and inclusive conservation work. The presentation will be in English and followed by a Q&A.
