Community capacity for better water catchment management outcomes using popular education approaches
Date of this Version
In this paper we reflect on two different approaches to community engagement in natural resource management using water management as an example. We first define two approaches - the currently widely used ‘educate’ approach based on the learner being ‘educated’ and contrast this method with the ‘educere’ approach which seeks to build on learners’ experiences as the basis for engagement in resource management. We use our research in water management planning as examples in our reflections.
