This paper analyzes the household level forces driving the positive impact of inequality on common property forest cover in Mexico. A game theoretic model demonstrates that when common property goods are complementary to private inputs in production,...

A common assumption is that ecosystem services respond linearly to changes in habitat size. This assumption leads frequently to an “all or none” choice of either preserving coastal habitats or converting them to human use. However, our survey of wave...

After a four-year process of analyzing its efforts to integrate conservation and livelihoods at the field level, FFI has drawn together practical lessons and recommendations, and a series of case studies from its four regional programmes. This...

Published: 2008

Traditionally Land Use Cover Change (LUCC) studies have focused on processes of negative land-cover change, primarily deforestation, partially because examples of positive land-cover change were not common. During the last two decades an outstanding...

Published: 2008

A number of global priority region schemes have been developed, but local assessments are needed to identify priority areas for conservation within these regions. Here, we describe results from a conservation assessment for Maputaland, part of a...

Published: 2008

Payments for environmental services (PES) have attracted increasing interest as a mechanism to translate external, non-market values of the environment into real financial incentives for local actors to provide environmental services (ES). In this...

Biodiversity protection does not undermine poverty alleviation goals in development projects, especially under sustainable finance and market mechanisms.

Walpole, M., Wilder, L.,
Published: 2008

Biodiversity conservation is increasingly expected to reduce poverty where the two coincide. Yet conservation and poverty are multifaceted concepts and the linkages between them are complex and variable; whether and how conservation contributes to...

Di Falco, S., Chavas, J-P.,
Published: 2008

This book reflects current developments in the economics of agrobiodiversity and focuses its attention on the role agrobiodiversity can have for economic development. As a new and rapidly expanding subfield at the interface of environmental/ecological...

This book delivers the first comprehensive overview of the rapidly growing literature and debates surrounding African pastoralist peoples, their land use, their environmental impacts, the interplay of their livelihoods with conservation and their...

Brown, K., Daw, T., Rosendo, S., Bunce, M., Cherrett, N.
Published: 2008

This study focuses on assessing the scientific knowledge of the linkages between ecosystem services and poverty alleviation in coastal and marine ecosystems. It does not seek to undertake new analysis per se, but rather to assess existing data, to...

Traditional grazing grounds near Amboseli National Park (Kenya) are being rapidly converted to cropland – a process that closes important wildlife corridors. We use a spatially explicit simulation model that integrates ecosystem dynamics and pastoral...
