Linking Protected Area Conservation with Poverty Alleviation in Uganda: Integrated Conservation and Development at Bwindi National Park
This chapter is part of an edited volume on sustainable development, conservation strategies and the environmental impacts of National Parks. It focuses on the conflicts that have arisen between people local to Bwindi National Park and the park authorities, the Integrated Conservation and Development (ICD) strategies that have been implemented, the challenges faced and lessons learned.

Despite interventions aimed at improving the livelihoods of communities in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in Uganda, the illegal use of the park's resources continued. This IIED project aimed to better understand who is carrying out the unauthorised use of resources and why, so that interventions can be more effective in the future.
