Linking Great Ape Conservation and Poverty Alleviation Project Flyer
Linking Great Ape Conservation and Poverty Alleviation is an initiative of the Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (PCLG). The project is scheduled to run from 2013 to 2015 and aims to strengthen the capacity of conservation organisations to address poverty issues and make better links with development organisations, private sector, parliamentarians and other institutions that influence investment decisions in great ape ranges.
The initiative is funded by the Arcus Foundation and UKaid from the UK Government, however, the views expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of either funder.
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.
