The objective of CROSCOG is to share existing research and experiences in the governance of large scale natural resource commons across different ecosystem types in Southern Africa - including marine and other large water body coastal zones; arid and semi-arid grasslands, savannas and forest patches; and floodplain ecosystems. The dual challenge of governance is to meet large scale problems with large scale solutions that are rooted in local practices and to use an ecosystem approach to integrate the management of different types of commons, each of which may play a role in the household survival strategies of vulnerable populations. The work takes place in two phases each one having a theme: 1) Knowledge, Power, Economic Transformation and Existing Commons Practices; and 2) Building On Existing Practices to Achieve Effective Governance Across Extensive Scales.
