Aim of project CiVi.net
The CiVi.net project aimed to analyze, transfer and disseminate successful and sustainable community based solutions with regard to ecosystem service management in Latin America. The main focus was on institutional settings in terms of original rules and related governance models which help to prevent and resolve tensions arising from the necessary new repartition and use of natural resources. The role of civil society organizations (CSOs) within these governance models was thereby at the core of the research.
