Protecting Hard-Won Ground: USAID EXPERIENCE AND PROSPECTS FOR by Tim Resch — last modified Jan 10, 2013 07:33 AM
This paper has been prepared under the Biodiversity Analysis and Technical Support (BATS) project, which is implemented by Chemonics International in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the World Conservation Union (IUCN), and the International Program Consortium (IPC) with support from the U.S. Forest Service Office of International Programs (USFS/IP) and the Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group (ABCG). It is based on a review of documents and interviews with key conservation and development personnel. By nature this report is a somewhat subjective assessment of the significant trends and advances of the past 30 years. It is not the intention of this report to present a comprehensive account of USAID biodiversity activities in Africa, but instead to provide a spotlight on important events and programs as well as an analytic lens through which to view the evolution of programming in this area. Likewise, while conservation science is referenced and discussed throughout the report, it is done so only to provide the context for the evolution of USAID biodiversity programming, not to provide a full account of the evolution in conservation thinking and approaches. The report is organized as follows: Section I provides an introduction to the process and methodology for the report. Section II provides an in-depth treatment of the epochs and cross-cutting themes in USAID biodiversity programming. Section III examines the challenges that lie ahead for conservation in Africa. Section IV draws the conclusions for the document, and discusses potential areas for USAID future programming.
