Linking Conservation and Poverty Alleviation: A Discussion Paper on Good and Best Practice in the Case of Great Ape Conservation
PCLG discussion paper number 11, is intended to provide guidance for conservation practitioners on whether and how to address poverty alleviation in the contexts in which they work. It addresses the overarching question: “What role should the practice of conservation play in the alleviation of poverty?” The paper provides a framework for evaluating how to ensure conservation actions do not exacerbate poverty and under what circumstances conservation actions could help alleviate poverty.
This publication is an output of the Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (PCLG) - Discussion Paper, number 11
Great Ape conservation organisations are increasingly aware of the need to address poverty if they are to be successful in their efforts to conserve habitats and protect dwindling Great Ape populations. This project aims to encourage the involvement of Great Ape conservation organisations in the Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (PCLG) to promote shared learning.
