  Ethiopia was endowed with abundant and diversified flora and fauna. Especially, forest ecosystem is one the important habitats which provide as home of variety of life. Thus, wood vegetation that covered almost all of the area is reduced due to miss management, limited awareness of forest value and high population pressure. Particularly, the forest resources of Harari region, eastern and .   Biodiversity is also often a good measure of a forest’s health, but again, few studies have looked into biodiversity levels in community-managed forests .

This Toolkit “Participatory Biodiversity Monitoring in Community Managed Forests” provides methods and tools needed to generate useful data to periodically assess the biodiversity status and to track the impact of community based forest management on biodiversity.

The purpose is to derive important lessons for improving management that promotes. Participatory monitoring (also known as collaborative monitoring, community-based monitoring, locally based monitoring, or volunteer monitoring) is the regular collection of measurements or other kinds of data (), usually of natural resources and biodiversity, undertaken by local residents of the monitored area, who rely on local natural resources and thus have more local knowledge of those.

Community forests have adopted forest restoration approach to reduce deforestation and biodiversity threats in the Barandabhar corridor with an aim of recovering ecological integrity and enhance. This study applies the contention from development studies that participatory approaches may be tyrannical to participatory monitoring of Nepal's community forests.

() Reshaping conservation: the social dynamics of participatory monitoring in Tanzania's community-managed by: Much participatory forest research has consequently been technical in nature, involving communities in evaluating harvesting techniques, biodiversity monitoring, mapping and commercialization.

This guide is designed to help facilitators develop community-based monitoring initiatives for forest biodiversity by providing a series of steps, recommendations and examples to guide the process.

While the guide applies to forest biodiversity, similar approaches can be used to monitor other aspects of natural-resource management. Community-managed forests provide a wide variety of ES to people with benefits that range from local to global scales.

• The participatory GIS approach is useful for spatial ES mapping in data-poor regions. • Local people׳s perception and expert opinion are appropriate tools for identifying key ES in community-managed forest landscapes.

Forests are often managed for the supply of forest products such as timber, pulpwood, fuelwood, medicines, resins, and food.

They are also managed for ecosystem services such as watershed protection, carbon sequestration, and airshed production. In addition, forests provide recreational opportunities and spiritual aspects that people value. participatory monitoring in community forestry which presents step-by-step guidelines with explanations and illustrations.

Local people participate by defining and asking core questions, or—in a less participatory way— professionals and authorities can define the questions while local people supply the data.

Engel and Voshell ; Boylen et al. ) there are few documented examples of participatory wetland monitoring from. Biodiversity monitoring with communities is another key feature of the conservation agreement programme that helps maintain communities interest and build their capacity to understand the forests.

The PFBMS should assist stakeholders to develop and select highly rewarding/ high-performance criteria and indicators (C&I), and to develop a system to monitor C&I integrating the system into a FMU Forest Management Plan (FMP).

New forest legislation on community forest management in the Southern Region of Ethiopia inalongside the development of a highly devolved method of CFM, provided a natural experiment for testing the effectiveness of this method as a way of maintaining forest and also supporting biodiversity conservation and carbon storage.

Participatory community monitoring programs (PCM) have become an important methodological innovation for the management of biodiversity conservation in protected areas. Based on the participation of the local communities, they are presented as less costly programs than conventional ones. However, in practical terms, such programs pose serious implementation challenges.

Community forest management is one of the successful stories of green economy sectors in Nepal recognized by the United Nation Environment Programme.

It was initiated in Nepal to mitigate increasing deforestation and forest degradation and address the negative impacts on rural livelihoods. Different studies are conducted by researchers to assess the role of community forest in biodiversity.

Tiny, dense forests are springing up around Europe as part of a movement aimed at restoring biodiversity and fighting the climate crisis. Often sited in schoolyards or alongside roads, the forests. A community-based monitoring system that focuses on natural resource use and forest quality in montane evergreen forest and miombo woodland areas was developed and implemented in 23 villages in as part of a participatory forest management regime in Iringa District, Tanzania.

The scheme was developed to suit the needs and capacities of locally-elected natural resource committees. Forest fire monitoring purpose) and to all types of managers (public, private and community). This document was written to facilitate the preparation of the guidelines. The objective was disease management) and to conserving or enhancing biodiversity in forests (e.g.

by effective. To do so, the development community needs to think bigger, work across silos, and establish the mechanisms to mobilize the ambition and funding necessary to secure rights of the local people who play a critical role in the care and management of the forest and biodiversity .The table below gives an overview of Community Based Forest Management on mainland Tanzania.
