Blackman, A.
Published: 2015

Rodriguez-Pineros, S., Mayett-Moreno, Y.
Published: 2015

The use of forest land for ecotourism has been well accepted due to its ability to provide income to local people and to conserve the forest. Preparing the forest with infrastructure to attract and educate visitors has been reported of...

Blackman, A., Pfaff, A., Robalino, J.
Published: 2015

Although developing countries have established scores of new protected areas over the past three decades, they often amount to little more than “paper parks” that are chronically short of the financial, human, and technical resources needed for...

Published: 2015

Co-management, in combination with social capital, is expected to improve social–ecological outcomes in protected areas. This paper builds a model of how co-management and social capital are linked, and it investigates how they have changed over...

Published: 2015

The potential impacts of payments for environmental services (PES) and protected areas (PAs) on environmental outcomes and local livelihoods in developing countries are contentious and have been widely debated. The available evidence is sparse,...

Senyolo, M.P., Chaminuka, P., Belete, A.
Published: 2015

Optimal use of land in rural areas has the potential to reduce poverty and attain rural economic development. Conservation with tourism benefits could potentially reduce poverty in rural areas where agricultural potential is limited. However,...

Gray, C.L., Bozigar, M., Bilsbarrow, R.E.
Published: 2015

Wild product harvesting by forest-dwelling peoples, such as hunting, fishing, forest product collection and timber harvesting, is considered a major threat to the biodiversity of tropical forests worldwide. However, few studies have attempted to...

Walter, R.K., Hamilton, R.J.
Published: 2015

International environmental organizations have an increasing commitment to the development of conservation programs in high-diversity regions where indigenous communities maintain customary rights to their lands and seas. A major challenge that...

Published: 2015

We used data on number of carcasses of wildlife species sold in 79 bushmeat markets in a region of Nigeria and Cameroon to assess whether species composition of a market could be explained by anthropogenic pressures and environmental variables around...

Taylor, G., Scharlemann, J.P.W., Rowcliffe, M., , Kumpel, N., , Harfoot, M.B.J.
Published: 2015

Unsustainable hunting threatens both biodiversity and local livelihoods. Despite high levels of research effort focused on understanding the dynamics of bushmeat trade and consumption, current research is largely site specific. Without synthesis...

Paniagua-Zambrana, N.Y., Camara-Leret, R., Bussmann, R.W., Macia, M.J.
Published: 2015

In this study, we examine the influence of socioeconomic variables on TK across different ecoregions (Amazon, Andes, and Chocó) of northwestern South America, using a standardized interview protocol. Specifically, we evaluate the predictive...

Baraloto, C., Alverga, P., Baez-Quispe, S., Barnes, G., Bejar Chura, N.
Published: 2015

Contemporary conservation interventions must balance potential trade-offs between multiple ecosystem services. In tropical forests, much attention has focused on the extent to which carbon-based conservation provided by REDD+ policies can also...

Kalaba, F.K.
Published: 2014

Globally, there is increasing attention among academics, policymakers and development agencies in understanding interactions within forest socio-ecological systems to provide insights on human-environment interactions and how forest ecosystems...

Moro, M., Fischer, A., Milner-Gulland, E.J., Lowassa, A., , Naiman, L.C.
Published: 2014

Illegal hunting for bushmeat is regarded as an important cause of biodiversity decline in Africa. We use a ‘stated preferences’ method to obtain information on determinants of demand for bushmeat and two other protein sources, fish and chicken,...

Meilby, H., Smith-Hall, C., Byg, A., Larsen, H., Nielsen, O.
Published: 2014

Lack of combined forest productivity and income studies means there is scant evidence for the sustainability of rural household-level forest incomes in developing countries. This study examines levels and patterns of forest increment, wood...

Parker, D.M., Whittington-Jones, B.M., Bernard, R.T.F., Davies-Mostert, H.T.
Published: 2014

Human–carnivore conflict has profound impacts on carnivore populations and lives of rural communities. In Tanzania, African lions (Panthera leo) have attacked over 1000 people in the last twenty years. We developed a...

Angelsen, A., Jagger, P., Babigumira, R., Belcher, B., Hogarth, N.J.
Published: 2014

This paper presents results from a comparative analysis of environmental income from approximately 8000 households in 24 developing countries collected by research partners in CIFOR’s Poverty Environment Network (PEN). Environmental income...

Doane, M.
Published: 2014

This paper explores the paradigm shift from 1990s models of community conservation that encoded environmentalist praxis within legal and cadastral frameworks, to recent attempts to encode environmentalist principles and goals within individual...

Kansky, R., Knight, A.T.
Published: 2014

Biodiversity conflicts, and human–wildlife conflicts (HWC) in particular, are predicted to increase. Understanding drivers of these conflicts is a prerequisite for developing strategies to achieve conservation goals. People are a part of all HWC...

Chernela, J, Zanott, L.
Published: 2014

Despite widespread recognition of the importance of community-conservation partnerships, problems continue to emerge. In this paper we examine one such interaction to propose that outside organisations have wrongly associated the delimitations...

Lopez-Feldman, A.
Published: 2014

This paper examines the effects of household- and village-level characteristics on environmental reliance and participation in resource extraction decisions. Unlike previous analyses that used case studies or regional samples, I use a nationally...

Human–carnivore conflict has profound impacts on carnivore populations and lives of rural communities. In Tanzania, African lions (Panthera leo) have attacked over 1000 people in the last twenty years. We developed a...

Znajda, S.K.
Published: 2014

The lack of clear indications of success in integrated conservation and development projects has resulted in strong criticisms of these projects, and a call for the return to conservation activities that exclude local communities. Impeding this...

Published: 2014

Recent conservation planning studies have presented approaches for integrating spatially referenced social (SRS) data with a view to improving the feasibility of conservation action. We reviewed the growing conservation literature on SRS data,...
