Counting on the Environment: The contribution of forests to rural livelihoods

15 June 2011, The Royal Society, London

This research policy conference. "Counting on the Environment: The contribution of forests to rural livelihoods", aims to increase awareness about the critical links between poverty and the environment by presenting new research findings and bringing together researchers, policy makers, and practitioners. An intended outcome of the conference is to help putting the environment more firmly onto the poverty agenda, and to strengthen the case for more systematic data collection on the way in which poor people rely on forests.
