Implementation and Results

A conservation and development information system is being designed to provide information about, and allow formal feedback on, the status and trends of ecological and social indicators within the ecosystem. Formal participation is achieved primarily through the steering committee. No structures exist for participation at district and village levels. Various district and village workshops, on topics like game reserve management plans, village land-use plans and wildlife utilization plans, are held on an ad hoc basis in association with SRCS local level planning. Other than that, participation by district officers, elected officials, NGOs, and local communities is informal.
