CALL FOR INPUT: Social Entrepreneurship to Reduce Conflict over Natural Resources through Collective Action

A CGIAR research initiative is looking for social entrepreneurs with insights into how to promote collective action to reduce conflict over natural resources.

Seeking social entrepreneurs

How do social entrepreneurs promote collective action to reduce conflict over natural resources? We are seeking innovative practitioners with experience enabling collaborative efforts by civil society groups in developing countries to address conflict or competition over natural resources such as water, land, forests, and fisheries.

If you have such experience and would be interested to participate in a 60-minute interview, please let us know. Similarly, if you would like to help by putting us in touch with others who fit this description, we’d love to have your suggestions.

The interviews will contribute to a CGIAR research initiative that will compare experiences, identify practical lessons, and share these among researchers and practitioners in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Individuals who agree to be interviewed will have an opportunity to review and confirm their own observations, and the option to join in subsequent exchange with fellow practitioners to help refine lessons. Interviews may be conducted in English, Spanish, or French.
