How do the building blocks interact?
A strategic alliance between the Wildlife Conservation Society and the nine communities, represented by the Conservation Association of the Mbe Mountains, has helped to ensure that the three buildings blocks are combined effectively to produce the solution. Demonstrating reduced rates of hunting and forest loss within the Mbe Mountains has improved donor confidence in, and funding for, CAMM. This recognition, and improved local control of forests and wildlife, has in turn strengthened levels of community support for conservation. Speaking with one voice, and with better levels of trust between the nine communities and improved capacity of CAMM, the demands for more secure land tenure by the nine communities cannot be easily ignored.
