Governance, equity and the greenlist
The workshop ‘Governance, Equity and the Green List‘ was held in Kenya in February 2018. It focused on the multi-stakeholder, participatory methodology being developed by IIED in partnership with GIZ and IUCN to assess governance quality at individual protected areas and conservation areas.
The workshop objectives were to: identify and characterise key governance and equity issues emerging from experience of using the methodology in Bangladesh, Philippines, Kenya and Uganda; critique the methodology and consider outstanding issues such as monitoring progress over time and contributing to improved policy and practice; refine and clarify key concepts; and build capacity so that the facilitators present can lead a governance assessment process in the future and train others in the methodology. This report summarises the proceedings.
The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) has developed and tested a relatively simple, low cost methodology for assessing the positive and negative social impacts of protected areas, and is now supporting its roll-out.
