A Review of Benefit Sharing and Community Conservation Approaches in the Albertine Rift Region

Publication overview

The creation of protected area systems within the Albertine Rift region deprived local communities of their sources of livelihood and as such caused resentment and conflict towards the gazetted areas. Several initiatives by protected area authorities and conservation NGOs have been started around the protected areas to try and resolve the conflicts and increase the benefits the communities derive.
