Cultural values: a forgotten strategy for building community support for protected areas in Africa

Cultural values: a forgotten strategy for building community support for protected areas in Africa

A shift in emphasis from economic incentives for conservation may help conserve wildlife and protected areas in Africa. The range of initiatives and investments of donor funds has struggled to provide tangible benefits from conservation to local communities in Africa. However, a number of studies show that cultural values can provide incentives for communities to conserve wildlife. The promotion of conservation in the context of local culture would provide protected areas with a significance that is not provided by an emphasis on biological diversity, landscape, and economics. In addition, the promotion of cultural values would provide a counterbalance to economic pressures on protected regions.
