Abstract

Environmental online communication epitomizes the opportunities offered by information and communication technologies in managing the changes brought about because of globalization of environmental and developmental concerns, and the increased integration of environmental issues with socio-political concerns of development. Taking the Community-Based Natural Resource Management Network (CBNRM Net) as a case study, this chapter argues how environmental online communication could look beyond an emphasis on information to focusing on knowledge, and to management of such knowledge that can be instrumental in achieving the goals of more equitable and sustainable natural resource management. An assessment of the present and future role and scope of environmental online communication in development cooperation, and in community-based natural resource management in particular, is provided.
