File Improving Grassroots Equity in the Forests and Climate Change Context: Training Manual by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jun 11, 2015 12:16 AM
The USAID-funded Grassroots Equity and Enhanced Networks in the Mekong (GREEN Mekong) program recently completed a seminal training publication entitled “Improving grassroots equity in the forests and climate change context”. The manual aims to develop the knowledge and capacities of grassroots facilitators to conduct meaningful participatory processes that can improve social equity and inclusion in forest-based climate change mitigation policy frameworks, mechanisms and projects. Using innovative training approaches and methodologies grounded on experiential learning principles, this manual differs from typical REDD+ materials as it focuses on the ‘how' rather than the ‘what' of equity. It will help grassroots stakeholders to generate valuable opinions and positions about forests and climate change related developments. This manual will be translated into all Mekong region languages for wider use by grassroots actors.

File Conservation Enterprises: Using a Theory of Change Approach to Examine Evidence for Biodiversity Conservation by Sue Hoye — last modified Feb 14, 2018 03:35 PM
In this brief, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment (E3) Office of Forestry and Biodiversity (FAB) Measuring Impact (MI) project examined the evidence presented in the studies included in Roe et al.’s systematic review of alternative livelihood activites. MI examined the evidence in these studies relative to the assumptions in the theory of change described for conservation enterprises. Key findings include the following: 1) None of the assessments of activities supporting conservation enterprises were designed with a clear theory of change making it difficult to relate some of the outcomes that were measured to the assumptions underlying the strategic approach; 2) Most established enterprises generated economic benefits; 3) Economic benefits co-occurred with positive changes in behavior only about half the time; and 4) There was virtually no assessment of whether changes in behavior led to threat reduction.
