These web pages focus on:
- NGOs and their role in CBNRM has to be understood and assessed as links between: (1) the local and the regional, (2) the traditional and the modern, (3) between culture and economics, and (4) the collective/group and the individual.
- The traditional social organization, including, for example, the family, is at the bottom and is the point of departure for NGOs.
- Who do NGOs represent? Where are their allegiance? Do they (re)present the local to the macro-level, or is it vice versa?
- Can NGOs, in working upwards, be advocating groups, e.g. cooperatives, that are not sustainable, because they are not representing and cooperating closely enough with the local level?
