The CCRN is a network of researchers working together with diverse community, aboriginal and governmental organizations based at 11 study sites around the world. The CCRN studies the linkages between communities and conservation, to create new knowledge on community-oriented environmental governance, links to livelihoods, and the success of conservation initiatives. This work is expected to yield new and important lessons for communities, policy makers and decision makers at the regional, national and international levels. The CCRN is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and hosted at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Canada.
Some of the participating study sites in the network are:
The Kesho Trust is pleased to have been accepted as an affiliate member of the network. Our continuing work in the Saadani area with our PECC project and building on the PAPR provides important knowledge and experience to contribute to the network. Another new initiative in which we are participating, the Institutional Canopy of Conservation led by McGill University and in partnership with PALISEP will also be a focus for contributions to the same general area of research.
