Striking a Balance

This leaflet promotes the Striking a Balance (SAB) approach, which seeks to address the widespread and growing pressures on wetlands in Africa from agricultural and other uses. It focuses on the way in which natural resources need to be valued by communities if they are to be used sustainably. In this way the value obtained from the wetland motivates communities to undertake management practices which will enhance and sustain it. However, such uses have to be based on a sound understanding of how wetlands function, especially the functional landscape approach, and how they should be managed through community institutions.
