Since its inception the goal of community based conservation has been to incorporate improvement in the lives of local people with the conservation of biodiversity. This session explores the ways in which quality of life plans can help strengthen the communities in and around conservation land. Papers in this session will highlight methods to define clear benefits to the community from conservation and illustrate the role strong communities play in furthering conservation land protection. Papers highlight methods that have proven successful in supporting underrepresented groups in efforts to maintain sovereignty, protect land rights, or exert greater control in local decision-making. A common theme through the papers is methods that elicit community engagement and empower communities through conducting their own planning process.
