Sustainable Wildlife Management (SWM) Programme

The Sustainable Wildlife Management (SWM) Programme is the first international initiative to tackle the wild meat challenge by addressing both wildlife conservation and food security. This African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) initiative is funded by the European Union through the 11th European Development Fund (EUR 45 Million). The SWM Programme mobilizes an international group of partner organizations with strong expertise and experience in wildlife conservation, food security and policy development. It is implemented through a consortium partnership, which includes the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD).

The SWM Programme is developing innovative, collaborative and scalable new models, which conserve wildlife and protect ecosystems, whilst at the same time improving the living conditions and food security of the people who depend on these resources. Eight models are being developed in thirteen pilot countries, of which twelve are ACP countries. In each country, the SWM partners are working closely with national authorities and other local institutions. The RESSOURCE Project is part of the SWM Programme and aims to improve the management of natural resources and in particular migratory waterbird populations in the Sahelian wetlands for the benefit of local people.
