  Guassa-Menz Community Conservation Area - Ethiopia
For over 400 years, the grasslands in the Guassa area of Menz in Ethiopia’s central highlands were governed under a communal management system that regulated harvesting of thatch grass and livestock grazing. Since 2003, a local initiative has revived this system to prevent exploitation of the grasslands, resulting in the recovery of wildlife populations, improved grasslands quality, and the legal recognition of the Guassa Community Conserved Area in 2008.
