Tools for strengthening good governance in NRM in the Congo Basin

Since its inception, CARPE has developed under its strategic framework the Intermediate Result 2 (IR2) on good governance in Natural Resources Management (NRM) with two challenging indicators:

Indicator 1: Number of key new laws or policies for Protected Areas, logging concessions, and Community Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) areas passed or old laws and policies reformed with CARPE assistance;
Indicator 2: Number of NGO (and other civil society organizations) advocacy initiatives and activities (e.g., media articles about environmental governance issues e.g. illegal logging, bushmeat poaching; Natural Resources court cases brought or complaints filed with appropriate government agencies) promoted with CARPE assistance.

To achieve this challenge, CARPE has established a Small Grant Program as a mechanism to build civil society capacities through learning by doing, thereby enabling civil society to be more proactive and effective in mobilizing itself to work side-by-side with the government and other stakeholders to develop and promote new laws and policies, review existing ones and ensure their implementation for sustainable natural resources management.

Under the good governance component of the CARPE program, several tools were developed to ensure effective implementation, monitoring and reporting including:
a) the country team, which is a platform for planning and prioritizing actions for policies and legal development, revision and implementation,
b) the country matrix, to plan, execute and report on results and,
c) a detailed Small Grant Policy and Procedure Manual to administer the Small Grant program.
For advocacies, laws, decrees, policies and media articles generated under this program in the CARPE countries, select one of the nine CARPE countries listed below for specific documents.
