THE SOCIETY for the Conservation and Study of Caribbean Birds (SCSCB) invited the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) to facilitate two workshops on “Using Participatory Natural Resource Management as a Tool for Conservation.” The workshop objectives were that by the end of the one-day workshop, participants would be able to: 1. Define various types of participatory natural resource management (PNRM); 2. Define key concepts in PNRM – stakeholder, institution, natural resource management, livelihoods; 3. Discuss the value of using participatory processes in natural resource management; 4. Identify examples of PNRM in the Caribbean; 5. Identify some key tools in PNRM–for example, stakeholder identification and analysis, capacity analysis and capacity building, stakeholder mobilisation, and conflict management; 6. Develop preliminary strategies and key action points for application of PNRM to a case study.
