This special edition of the journal VertigO highlights how post-conflict societies can strengthen environmental and good governance practices in community-based natural resource management. Drawing on IDRC-supported research conducted in the African Great Lakes Region, articles in the special edition look at the impact of cycles of armed conflict, degradation of natural resources, and poverty and the challenges in restoring these resources in a post-conflict context.

The special issue was edited by Pascal M. Isumbisho of the Université évangélique en Afrique and IDRC senior program specialist, Pascal Sanginga.
