CBNRM Net is a global network and a virtual Community of Practice for people that work on Community-Based Natural Resource Management
Community-Based Natural Resource Management Network (CBNRM Net) is a global network and a virtual Community of Practice for people that work on Community-Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) and related approaches in various capacities, including as donors, evaluators, practitioners, project managers, and researchers.
The 500+ members that work in over 100 countries include both individuals, organizations and NGOs, and as located in civil society, public sector, and the private sector. CBNRM Net aims to network among members and between members and the outside, and does this
partly through emphasizing knowledge management and partly through use of select ICTs in the service of social networking. The CBNRM Net website (www.cbnrm.net) is a means to: (1) manage the growing amount of CBNRM-related knowledge, and (2) connect the members with each other. Beside the website, a key networking tool is the CBNRM Net Newsletter.
CBNRM Net was set up as a World Bank activity by the Coordinator in 1998, but is now located wholly in civil society. CBNRM Net is supported by CBNRM Networking (www.cbnrm.com), a Norwegian non-profit that supports activities in the area of Community-Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) and
related approaches globally.
