This 4th CBNRM forum focused its discussion in the Wildlife Sector in Tanzania, particularly on Engaging Communities in curbing Illegal Wildlife Trade in Tanzania covering the four pathways;

  1. Equitable benefits from conservation
  2. Law enforcement through strengthening local norms against IWT
  3. Costs of living with wildlife ‘Human wildlife conflict’
  4. Alternative livelihood improvement/Income Generation Activities (IGAs)

The team had two visits in Baringo; first visit was in Irong conservancy to meet the community to assess level of engagement and the benefits so far PRM has for the community. From the community consultation meeting, Irong leadership was of the opinion to address water development especially the Sukta springs which provides water for livestock, wildlife and human beings during both wet and dry season. The second visit was in Koitagen Community Forest where the community is protecting the forest as a catchment area. This catchment area is believed to be very important for smooth flow of water downstream for the benefits of pastorals and agro pastoral communities in the area.
