Bushmeat Crisis and Collaborative Action


ABCG- Bushmeat Crisis Theme

To discuss and catalyze innovative actions to address the Bushmeat crisis, the Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group (ABCG) worked with the Bushmeat Crisis Task Force (BCTF) on a March 2001 meeting held at World Wildlife Fund (WWF).  The meeting identified potential areas for collaborative action in Africa on long-term and short-term solutions to the Bushmeat crisis including:

1)   Sustainable funding for wildlife conservation and protected area management

2)   Policy at the international, national and local levels

3)   Development of Bushmeat modules for the three regional wildlife training colleges in Africa

4)   Development of linkages between NGOs, the private sector, local communities, and governments

5)   Urban market/ access route control and monitoring

6)   Protected area strengthening

7)   Market-seller and hunter management groups

8)   Alternative protein  

9)   Alternative income-generating activities.  

Items discussed included gaps in knowledge and on-the-ground action as well as potential collaborators not currently engaged in the process of addressing the Bushmeat crisis.  This meeting served as a precursor to the May BCTF Action Planning Conference.
