The 'Sangha' Guidelines for Landscape Approaches

The Sangha group is an informal network of managers and researchers working in the Tri National de la Sangha. The Sangha Guidelines will be used as a starting point for an international effort to develop more broadly applicable Guidelines for landscape approaches in other areas.

The Sangha group is an informal network of managers and researchers working in the Tri National de la Sangha.

In June 2008, the group held a workshop at Bayanga in the Central African Republic where representatives from international NGOs and research centres, aid agencies, governments and local people debated the lessons learned from attempts to apply landscape approaches in the Congo Basin. Proposed guidelines from international processes and from the academic literature were reviewed and participants in the meeting voted on which were most relevant to the landscapes where they worked.

The voting process led the group to refine the long list of potential guidelines that were considered the key orientation for landscape scale interventions. Twenty-seven guidelines emerged from the process, framed around six Principles, and four Overarching Considerations of a landscape approach. The Sangha Guidelines will be used as a starting point for an international effort to develop more broadly applicable Guidelines for landscape approaches in other areas.
