Bale Eco-Region Sustainable Management Programme

Building on the experiences of the Participatory Forest Management Programme, FARM-Africa and SOS Sahel are running a program in the Bale Mountains of Ethiopia on sustainable natural resource management: the Bale Eco-Region Sustainable Management Programme. The programme has been operating in the Bale Massif since the end of 2006 and brings local communities into a central role in sustainable natural resources management supported by government services, across the whole Bale Massif.

The programme aims to develop an eco-regional plan, strengthen institutional capacity for natural resource management, promote diversification of resource based livelihoods, set up sustainable financial mechanisms and put in place legal, policy and regulatory frameworks for eco-region planning, resource management and protected areas management
