ANSAB seeks to impart local communities with the knowledge they need to manage the ecosystems on which they heavily depend on a sustainable and inclusive way. As such, it devotes a lot of energy to capacity building in all its projects. More specifically, program activities include:
Training: organization of trainings in all shape and forms, from grassroots mobilization workshops to environmental assessment field courses to technical coaching on NTFPs processing and REDD+. The program mostly targets women, poor and other excluded groups, but several events are also organized at the regional, national and international levels for governmental and non-governmental organizations, consultants, experts, and researchers. Available training packages currently include:
Study Tours: organization of field visits for national and international researchers, donors, buyers and partners to study successful CFUGs or community-based enterprises. The program also facilitates exchanges between community forests and enterprises in similar situations to disseminate best practices and foster mutually benefitting business links.
Technical Assistance: provision of advice on an ongoing basis to all institutions with whom ANSAB has worked in the past, from local enterprises, CFUGs and DFOs to national partners and exporting companies; support of partners’ projects and programs related to biodiversity conservation, forest resource assessment, and community-based enterprise development.
Publications: production and dissemination of books, manuals, articles, reports, proceedings, price lists, trade directories, etc.
