Our Theory of Change

SORALO believes that achieving its vision of healthy, intact, landscapes that benefit people and wildlife requires addressing four key areas of intervention, expanded upon in our Theory of Change below. 


  • Improving rangelands governance by securing communal lands, water and natural resources through appropriate local tenure arrangements.
  • Improving natural resource management and conservation efforts to monitor, manage and protect wildlife and other resources.
  • Generating benefits and increased income through sustainable natural resource-based enterprises that improve local livelihoods and create incentives for conservation.
  • Promoting cultural values and practices that promote co-existence of people and wildlife.


These four interventions not only form SORALO’s overall Theory of Change for achieving our vision and mission, but also form the structure of our programmes and thus governs how we implement our work.
