About this book

This report presents a summary of findings of recent research on the value of non-timber forest products, game, and freshwater fisheries in Senegal, West Africa. The research is based on new data gathered from producers, traders, and consumers of wild plant and animal products. The results of the research demonstrate the economic significance of wild resources in Senegal. They also underscore the need to ensure the sustainable management of wild plants and animals for the benefit of those who depend upon them. As the government of Senegal pursues its long-term strategy for poverty reduction, it is essential that the full economic contribution of wild resources is taken into account.
