Community plays an important role in resource management
The Centre for Social Research and Development (CSRD) is again working with the community to improve resource management. Recently, CSRD organized a training course on ‘Water Resources and Fisheries Management’ at Buon Ma Thuot City, Dak Lak province on 19-20th October 2017.
The purpose of the training was to improve the capacity of community groups in resource management and to identify roles and responsibilities for community co-management.
The training was attended by 33 trainees from Dak Lak Province, Krong Ana district, Buon Don district, Ea Wer commune, Hoa Phu commune, Fisheries Associations in Lak District, Hoa Phu Commune, Na Wer Fishing Village and Tan Phu Fishing Village.
By participating in the training course, the participants learned more about the current status of water resources in the Central Highlands, hydropower developments in the Sre Pok River system and fisheries resources. The participants also discussed models of water and fisheries co-management, the role of stakeholders, and especially the role of women and youth in the management of resources. The findings from the workshop will be supported and implemented by the project in the coming time.
The activity is part of the project “Resource Management in the Central Highlands Region” which is being jointly implemented by CSRD and People and Nature Reconciliation (Pan Nature).
