Spatial patterns of illegal resource extraction in Kibale National Park

Authors:

The most wanted and extracted park resource by local people was wood for fuel and construction. Implementation of resource access agreements with local community associations was an effective means of reducing illegal extraction, but only if the association members profited financially from the agreement. This conservation strategy should be applied to resources that create income-generating opportunities, rather than those use for subsistence purposes.
