File Building accountable resource governance institutions by Allison Taylor — last modified Dec 19, 2019 03:02 PM
Formal institutions are central actors in natural resource governance decisions and a key arena in which policies, laws and regulations ranging from forest concessions to trade in wildlife products are negotiated and implemented. As gatekeepers in resource management decisions, natural resource governance institutions are frequent targets for actors seeking undue influence on these decisions. Getting to know institutions – how they work, the personalities involved, the pressures they are under, where their revenues come from – is a critical first step towards minimizing corrupt influences and unlocking their anti-corruption potential.
File Understanding effects of corruption on law enforcement and environmental crime by Allison Taylor — last modified Dec 19, 2019 02:44 PM
Law enforcement agencies monitor and enforce laws that protect landscapes, seascapes, and the species that inhabit them. In many countries environmental crimes are a low priority for law enforcement authorities, particularly when they are under-resourced and face a range of other threats to the rule of law. Corruption helps violators circumvent these laws and regulations and makes law enforcement a much less reliable tool for limiting and preventing environmental harms.

ABCG Upcoming Event: Scaling Up Community Conservation in The Greater Mara Ecosystem Oct 29, 2019 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM The Nature Conservancy 4245 Fairfax Dr. Suite 100 (5th Floor Common Area) Arlington, VA, by Portal Web Editor
The Maasai Mara ecosystem is home to approximately 25% of Kenya's wildlife. It hosts more than 95 mammal species besides being a recognized Important Bird Area with 550 bird species. Presently, about 70 per cent of this wildlife is living outside the gazetted conservation area - the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Adjacent land owned by local communities form key dispersal and diversity areas and are designated as Wildlife Conservancies that surround the National Reserve. Presently 15 conservancies have been established. They are all unique in natural habitat, size, and structure, and all share the same philosophy that both wildlife and local people should thrive.
