Evaluating Eden: Exploring the myths and realities of community-based wildlife management: Series overview
The Evaluating Eden project aimed to address three overall research questions: What has CWM achieved for wildlife and for people? How do social, political, economic and environmental factors influence the efficacy of CWM? And, what are the key characteristics of successful CWM and how can these be spread? This document summaries the overall conclusions of the project, and synthesises and compares the discussion papers and regional reports (from Central and West Africa, East Africa, Southern Africa, South Asia, South East Asia, Central America, South America, Canada and Australia).
