A Manual for the Africa Region

This manual is a practical contribution to promoting the provision of training for women in conservation and natural resource management. It aims to provide trainers and extension workers with the skills and techniques to train and involve women in conservation activities. Its methodology depends upon drawing out and utilising women’s indigenous technical knowledge and properly identifying their needs and priorities.



Conservation Techniques

This section of the Training Manual brings together a brief description of some simple techniques and methods which have been applied in conservation projects and a series of case studies which show how groups of rural women have used these ideas. This section is not meant to be a textbook, field manual or guidebook. It does not have all the recipes for a successful project but it should encourage groups to ask questions, discuss ideas and seek advice from technically qualified people.
