Backed by his unique experiences, Charles gives a fascinating perspective into conflict and the power of good that can emerge from the unexpected. During his time as a peace monitor in South Africa at the height of Apartheid, Charles Irvine developed a belief that conflict has the potential to be our greatest natural resource. Since relocating to the UK in 1996 to build “Questions of Difference”, a niche consultancy, he has gone on to inspire more than 40,000 people as a strategic business consultant in over 30 countries. He is driven by his passion for creating environments where groups of people do extraordinary things.

Management of renewable natural resources has turned out to be challenging with mismanagement as a frequent result. To develop student intuition and understanding of ecosystems and management strategies, students work with computer animations, simulators, games, and simulation models. Because learning takes place inside students, the course challenges students to think and develop ideas before they get immediate responses to their suggestions and before watching debriefing videos and reading supplied material (flipped classroom). The course also offers a discussion board. Each chapter starts with challenges to experience practical management, then there is a learning-by-doing section, and finally students apply what they have learnt and may at times compare to real world decisions. The course deals with fisheries, water reservoirs, forests, animal herds, plant growth, climate, spread of technology, product markets and commons problems. Different from most MOOC course offered by Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT and others, the course offers full course credits (from the University of Bergen, Norway) after finishing course assignments and having taken an online exam. There is no tuition fee. The course is offered at the graduate level. The course is offered in fall and spring semesters.

This presentation was given at the 2015 meeting of the Society for Range Management during the BLM AIM Symposium by Jason Karl. The AIM strategy is a powerful one for informing management decisions and characterizing resources, but only if the program or project is designed to take advantage of it appropriately. There is a workflow for thinking through each step of the design process that takes into account the local capabilities and needs and continuously re-evaluates earlier decisions using later decisions to refine them. The major steps for a monitoring program are: defining the monitoring needs, designing the monitoring, implementing the monitoring, maintaining the monitoring, and taking long-term monitoring into account.

January 12, 2010 - Billions of dollars from illegal logging in South East Asia and from the illicit sale of blood minerals in Africa fuel wars and adversely impact millions every year, as violent competition for strategic resources contributes to civil unrest in many parts of the world. Even though the mismanagement of natural resources lies at the heart of many of these conflicts, the sustainable and equitable use of petroleum, mineral and agricultural resources could help prevent conflict and promote lasting peace. The violence and consequent underdevelopment are facilitated by a complex political-economy that rewards a few and impoverishes the vast majority of the citizens in these countries. Reversing this trend will require sustained efforts to improve resource management and dismantle illicit political and commercial relationships. This event will examine the underpinnings of resource management in resource rich, conflict-prone states and explore options for strategies that could break the cycle of violence and lay the foundation for sustainable economic development. Paul Collier will use findings from his upcoming book "The Plundered Planet: Why We Must--and How We Can--Manage Nature for Global Prosperity" to analyze challenges facing these countries and outline strategies for domestic and international actors. Nancy Birdsall, president of the Center for Global Development, will respond to Collier's remarks and provide a practitioner's perspective based on examples from recent research. This event, hosted by USIP's Center for Sustainable Economies and Jennings Randolph Fellowship Program, builds on USIPs on-going efforts to analyze the conflict-development nexus and investigate innovative strategies for lasting peace and sustainable development in resource-rich developing countries.

You all are most welcome to “Nature and Life”. To manage natural resources co-management system has been initiated in our country by including local people in the management. Through co-management, biodiversity is being conserved and at the same time alternative employment is being created. As a result, natural resources are being conserved and local people are being benefitted. To discuss about different aspects of co-management for nature conservation we have with us Deputy Chief Conservator of Forests, Md. Abdul Latif Mia; Natural resources management specialist Mr. Mostafa Kamal Uddin; Mr. M. Anisul Islam, Director of CNRS. Md. Abdul Latif Mia, please tell us about the Co-management system. Co-management is a system to manage natural forests where local people are involved in the management. For example in natural forests like: Lawachara National Park, Himchari National Park, Wildlife Sanctuary in Teknaf etc. we have made co-management committee including local people, through which we are managing those forests. Why Forest Department is doing that? These forests are natural forests but local people depend on these forests for their different demands like: biomass fuel, timber etc. They harvest various forest resources and put pressure on the forests. But we failed to provide them with any facility legally. As a result, they collect resources illegally and spoil the forests. With the financial aid of USAID we started this process in 2003 with 5 committees in 5 Protected Areas. We included local people and empowered them in the process. For being part of the management they’ve got some rights and they are helping us in managing the forests. As a result, we are able to conserve the forests. We’ve started social forestation in ‘80s and we’ve included local people in that as well. There they get direct benefit from the trees of the forests. In co-management we’ve included them in the management of natural forests, where no one can cut the trees but they’ll get other facilities from the forests. Co-management is a new process started in 2003 with financial help of USAID. 3 projects are running now. We started first phase with Nishorgo. IPAC was the second phase. Co-management has now got an institutional form. I’ll come back to you later. Thank you. Mr. Anisul Islam, presently in which sector this co-management is active? We are mainly using co-management to conserve wetlands and forests. We are using this process for last two decades. And its benefit has been proved by empirical data and research. Co-management is very successful in managing wetland and forest and due to such management, forests and wetlands are being conserved and general people are also being benefitted. Right now Lawachara, Khadimnagar National Park, Satchari, Rema-Kalenga, Sundarbans, Chittagong Hill Tracts, some forests of Cox’s Bazar and some forests of Modhupur area are being managed under co-management. Among wetlands: Hakaluki Haor, Baikka Beel or Hail Haor, Tanguar haor etc. are being managed under co-management. I’ll come back to you again. Thank you. Mr. Mostafa Kamal Uddin, what role such management system is playing in nature conservation? Thank you. If I start from past, British colonial regime declared these forests as Reserved Forest for their own sake. Then the community was separated from the forests. The situation was such that local people used to think the forest to be govt. property and govt. is responsible to protect it and they can do whatever they want to get facilities from the forests. This was the situation throughout the world, especially in Asia pacific region, for last 30-40 years. Now around the globe everyone accepts that we can’t protect forests with bullets. If we involve local people and if they think the forest to be their property, only then it’ll be protected. Bangladesh is proactive from the perspective of this basic philosophy. This concept was initiated in 1992 when in the Earth Summit of Rio de Janeiro, on the basis of forest principle consensus, the whole world agreed that forest resource has to be conserved and we are part of that. After that we’ve made Forest Policy in 1994. And in 1995 we’ve made Forest Master plan. We accepted co-management as an approach in both cases. That was the beginning. The present status is that 17.2% of the total forestland under the custody of the Forest Department has been declared as Protected Area. And we have legal rules to manage those Protected Areas through co-management. In Wildlife Conservation and Security Act, 2012 it was declared that all our Protected Areas must be managed by plan and co-management. In 2017, under the leadership of the Forest Department, the govt. initiated Protected Area Rules. As a result, the legal base of co-management has become very strong and they are continuing the process.

Boom! Bust! Is your town at risk? Rural communities, past and present, have cycled between boom and bust phases with the extraction of natural resources such as coal, oil and timber. With the advent of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for natural gas, the boom-bust cycle is poised to repeat. Communities with natural gas resources are challenged to plan for the future, while balancing the realities of the present. Such is the case in Pennsylvania. Let's take a look.

Where both men and women are involved in decision making in Natural Resource Management (NRM), positive results have been achieved. However there is a gap in documentation of lessons learnt in engaging all groups. Thus, there is need for evidence‐based data on gender mainstreaming in NRM. Providing such evidence will highlight gaps of existing policies and strategies which do not recognize the importance of mainstreaming gender in NRM. Evidence‐based research assists in adoption and replication of effective practices among communities in the region and beyond. Policy makers and other stakeholders will be better informed on the advantages of consulting and involving women at all levels when crafting policies and frameworks of NRM leading to sustainable development. This project enhances the mainstreaming of gender through more structured participation of both women and men in strategy formulation, planning, and implementation of NRM. This involves collecting gender disaggregated data showcasing facts and figures and develop a platform to exchange knowledge and disseminate results widely across river basins. By strengthening gender mainstreaming in WRM the initiative will contribute to the objective 3.5 of the Global Action Plan for Sustainable Development which promotes strengthening and expansion of data on all groups to ensure that no one is left behind. It supports the key actions for this objective which includes the need to improve the production of high‐quality, accessible, timely, reliable and disaggregated data by all characteristics relevant in national contexts to ensure that no one is left behind; Promote the systematic mainstreaming of gender equality in all phases of planning, production and usage of data and statistics.
