FileOrange–Senqu River Basin Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis Final Draft by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Apr 13, 2014 04:10 PM
The main purpose of this transboundary diagnostic analysis (TDA) is to provide a scientific and technical basis for the identification and prioritisation of key issues concerning the degradation of aquatic ecosystems in the Orange–Senqu River basin. It is intended as a decision-support tool for the Orange–Senqu basin states and stakeholders to identify areas of future action to address key issues. It is aimed at, amongst others, civil society, industry, governments, academia and environmental groups in the four basin states.

FileWhy local people do not support conservation: Community perceptions of marine protected area livelihood impacts, governance and management in Thailand by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Apr 13, 2014 05:03 PM
Conservation success is often predicated on local support for conservation which is strongly influenced by perceptions of the impacts that are experienced by local communities and opinions of management and governance. Marine protected areas (MPAs) are effective conservation and fisheries management tools that can also have a broad array of positive and negative social, economic, cultural, and political impacts on local communities. Drawing on results from a mixed-methods study of communities on the Andaman Coast of Thailand, this paper explores perceptions of MPA impacts on community livelihood resources (assets) and outcomes as well as MPA governance and management. The area includes 17 National Marine Parks (NMPs) that are situated near rural communities that are highly dependent on coastal resources. Interview participants perceived NMPs to have limited to negative impacts on fisheries and agricultural livelihoods and negligible benefits for tourism livelihoods. Perceived impacts on livelihoods were felt to result from NMPs undermining access to or lacking support for development of cultural, social, political, financial, natural, human, physical, and political capital assets. Conflicting views emerged on whether NMPs resulted in negative or positive marine or terrestrial conservation outcomes. Perceptions of NMP governance and management processes were generally negative. These results point to some necessary policy improvements and actions to ameliorate: the relationship between the NMP and communities, NMP management and governance processes, and socio-economic and conservation outcomes.
