About this book

Presents a balanced perspective on how protected areas relate to poverty, both positively and negatively. On the one hand, protected areas deliver many benefits to the people living around them, ranging from tourism to pollination. On the other hand, protected areas may prevent some forms of resource use, and harbour animals that may damage crops in adjacent lands. But by carefully addressing these potential conflicts in an open and inclusive manner, protected area authorities can forge a productive partnership with the rural poor. The issues certainly will require further discussion, but this book provides a useful beginning that is built on a broad consensus of leading organisations working in conservation and development.
