Course description

This course analyzes the conceptual underpinnings, efficacy, and practice of this growing global trend of community-based natural resource management (aka co-management). The course is designed for students from diverse disciplines and different levels of expertise to think critically, jointly, about the multi-scale, contextual factors that influence conservation, livelihood, and well-being outcomes. It is especially designed for graduate students who seek concepts, tools, and strategies to integrate local participation and co-knowledge production into their work.
