Women in Nicaragua’s indigenous territories face substantial obstacles while participating in decision-making processes when it comes to the use of forests and forest resources in their communities. Though national laws and regional policies promote gender equality, forests are still seen primarily as the realm of men. Development/conservation projects on women are rarely concerned with forests. Projects on forests rarely pay attention to women or approach forests from a gender perspective.

This best practice describes how transboundary collaboration can reduce ongoing conflicts and sustain fisheries management on the Akagera river located at the border of Rwanda (Akagera National Park) and Tanzania. It came from my experiences working on a fishery project in Akagera national Park in 2015, where illegal fishing by Tanzanian fishers was a big threat to the conservation of wildlife in ANP. But it was hard to alleviate because of the lack of collaboration and good management strategies of fisheries resources.
