ResourceAfrica works with a range of partners to encourage and deliver new models of resource management based on community participation in which the values of transparency, equity and respect for local people, their needs and customs, are uppermost. The intention is that collaborative management should deliver tangible and equitable community benefits that in turn help encourage more effective resource conservation. With offices in Johannesburg and Cambridge, we also have a unique outreach and awareness programme through which Africa perspectives in natural resource management are brought to the attention of international policy-makers, while resource managers in Africa are kept informed of emerging international trends in policy and practice related to the conservation and sustainable use of natural resource.
