国际鸟盟出版了一本针对地区支持小组(Site Support Groups)的指导读物《保护的生物多样性:地区支持小组实施指南》,相信对其他国家类似的保育也有相当的帮助。SSG是以社区为基础的,有组织的,独立的志愿者团体,和国际鸟盟国际伙伴和其他组织一起工作,提高IBA和其他关键生物多样性地区的可持续发展。这是一种对保育工作很有效的操作方式。书的内容包括如何建立SSG,如何梳理SSG和政府,发展组织和私人的关系,以及如何管理和发展SSG,技术和能力,筹资,处理冲突等等。19国家有145个SSG。

An important new publication from the BirdLife International Africa Partnership provides a step-by-step guide to establishing and managing Site Support Groups. Although the focus is on Africa, Conserving Biodiversity In Africa: Guidelines for applying the Site Support Group Approach will be equally useful to partners on other continents.

Site Support Groups (also known as IBA Local Conservation Groups and Caretaker Groups) are organised, independent groups of volunteers who work with their communities, with the national BirdLife Partner and with other organisations to promote conservation and sustainable development at Important Bird Areas and other key biodiversity sites. They are one of the most practical approaches to conservation.

The book has a section on identifying the organisations or individuals who will form the SSG, and on building partnerships between the SSG and governments, development organisations and the private sector. Another section deals with developing and managing the SSG: its skills and capacity, its funding and governance, and managing the inevitable conflicts.

Other areas covered include the factors that make a group sustainable, the efficient use of funds, alternative income generation, the need for clearly defined roles and responsibilities, and even what happens when a well established SSG begins competing for donors with the BirdLife Partner which set it up.

The final paragraphs describe how to devise an ‘exit’ strategy –  preparing the SSG for the day when it must stand on it own feet, while the partner shifts some of its support to fledgling SSGs elsewhere.

“There are over 145 SSGs in more than 19 African countries, with the membership surging into thousands, and more being formed,” said Hazell Shokellu Thompson, Head of BirdLife International’s Africa Division. “About 10% are strong institutions able to fundraise and implement their own site conservation action and livelihood improvement projects. Our new guide should enable more of them to become self-sustaining, as well as explaining best practice to partners in countries where the SSG approach is still in its infancy.”

在亚洲也有类似的组织

亚洲的重点鸟区工作看展的比较晚,但一些地区的重点鸟区也有地区支持小组(SSG),比较早期开展的是越南红河三角洲春水国家公园的SSG,此外在菲律宾

、印尼、印度也有类似的工作;还计划在马来西亚、泰国、柬埔寨等国家加强这方面的工作。 照片就是越南春水国家公园的SSG合影。
