Biodiversity and Poverty: Ten Frequently Asked Questions – Ten Policy Implications

This paper is intended to stimulate discussion about the linkages between biodiversity, conservation and poverty reduction. What do we know, what do we not know, and what do we need to know? These ten questions provide a quick—hence simplistic—insight into a complicated and convoluted issue. We would therefore be very interested in your feedback. Are these the right questions? And the right answers? What else should we be asking—and trying to answer—to better understand (and enhance) the biodiversity-poverty relationship? Please send your ideas to pclg@iied.org. To find out more about this subject visit the Poverty and Conservation Learning Group website (link below).
