Guidelines for Video Submission: 



We would like to see videos which share the voices of community members and practitioners; i.e., those who have contributed to and been positively impacted by the implementation of CBNRM activities.



Videos should be up to 60 seconds in length, and in the following formats: QuickTime .WMV, .AVI, .MOV, or .MPG and be less than 25 MB in size.



Submissions will be accepted by emailing them to:




All videos should be submitted by January 4th, 2013. 


What to Say:


We want your voices to be heard!  Help us inspire and educate others about benefits and opportunities in CBNRM. 



Video testimonials should contain the following:

  1. First, please state your name, the name of your community group, and the region and country where you work;
  2. Then, tell us about the benefits your community has received through community-based natural resource management.  We suggest you start with the words, "For our community, community-based natural resource management means..."

Example: "Hello, my name is Fatoumata Bah from the Tiguri village in Beautiful, Manyislands. Community-based natural resource management means that my family has secured land rights and we have increased income through tourism that has grown in the area. I feel my family now has a secure future."
