Michael Bollig: Community based conservation at the cross-roads: social-ecological dynamics and economic change in Zambesi Region

Vortrag
Referent/in: Prof. Michael Bollig (Cologne)
Inhalt:

Community based conservation, organized in so-called conservancies, has been embedded in larger transboundary conservation activities recently. Conservancies have been active in the region since the late 1990s and currently a number of them garner sizeable incomes. While game numbers are increasing other aspects of the ecology are rendered susceptible. De-agrarization is a pertinent aspect of socio-economic change and off-farm incomes, remittances but also social transfers are increasingly gaining in relevance. In my talk I will shed a (first) light at pertinent social-ecological dynamics and economic change connected (and un-connected) to conservation. This talk is meant to give an introduction into recent transformations for those travelling to the region and designing the methodologcy in the near future. The talk is based on the analysis of numerous reports on the region and one-week long fact finding mission in February 2018.
