Methods for Consensus Building for Management of Common Property Resources (CPR).

Project Title:   Methods for Consensus Building for Management of Common Property Resources (CPR).
Type of Project Fisheries research
Duration:   April 2000-May 2001
Status:   Completed
Partner Organizations:   University of Newcastle-UK, CNRS, WorldFish Center, BCAS, Portsmouth University-UK.
Key words: University of Newcastle-UK, CNRS, WorldFish Center, BCAS, Portsmouth University-UK.
Main Objective:   The purpose of the project was to develop, test and promote a method for community participation in integrated sustainable management of terrestrial and aquatic floodplain resources.
Brief Description: Three review activities were undertaken: (i) a synthesis of consensus building and its application to natural resource management; (ii) review of three case studies of participatory planning for local management of CPRs in Bangladesh; (iii) a review of the major themes in community-based management of CPRs. To assess how process design affects consensus building, in this and three other CB-NRM projects, interviews were undertaken with project participants and non-participants, facilitators and local officials and analysed according to a set of process evaluation criteria.
Output The consensus building methodology was tested at four sites, improved through internal review, and promoted to other organisations involved in CB-CPRM. The methodology was successfully appraised using process evaluation techniques and was shown to build some types of social capital analogous to consensus.
