The Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group's Land and Resource Tenure Rights (LRTR) working group is developing and testing strategies and tools that place greater land and resource management authority in the hands of local resource users, thus creating incentives for them to exercise their authority in ways that are consistent with biodiversity conservation and sustainable use of renewable resources. The task members are piloting new approaches for securing tenure in three critical ecosystems: Greater Mahale Ecosystem, Tanzania (The Nature Conservancy, The Jane Goodall Institute); Kilombero Valley, Tanzania (African Wildlife Foundation, World Resources Institute); and Kabobo Reserve, DRC (Wildlife Conservation Society World Wildlife Fund). These ecosystems are anchors for biodiversity that support livelihoods for growing local populations.
