Illegal hunting for bushmeat is regarded as an important cause of biodiversity decline in Africa. We use a ‘stated preferences’ method to obtain information on determinants of demand for bushmeat and two other protein sources, fish and chicken,...

Meilby, H., Smith-Hall, C., Byg, A., Larsen, H., Nielsen, O.
Published: 2014

Lack of combined forest productivity and income studies means there is scant evidence for the sustainability of rural household-level forest incomes in developing countries. This study examines levels and patterns of forest increment, wood...

Published: 2014

Human–carnivore conflict has profound impacts on carnivore populations and lives of rural communities. In Tanzania, African lions (Panthera leo) have attacked over 1000 people in the last twenty years. We developed a...

Published: 2014

This paper presents results from a comparative analysis of environmental income from approximately 8000 households in 24 developing countries collected by research partners in CIFOR’s Poverty Environment Network (PEN). Environmental income...

Doane, M.
Published: 2014

This paper explores the paradigm shift from 1990s models of community conservation that encoded environmentalist praxis within legal and cadastral frameworks, to recent attempts to encode environmentalist principles and goals within individual...

Kansky, R., Knight, A.T.
Published: 2014

Biodiversity conflicts, and human–wildlife conflicts (HWC) in particular, are predicted to increase. Understanding drivers of these conflicts is a prerequisite for developing strategies to achieve conservation goals. People are a part of all HWC...

Chernela, J, Zanott, L.
Published: 2014

Despite widespread recognition of the importance of community-conservation partnerships, problems continue to emerge. In this paper we examine one such interaction to propose that outside organisations have wrongly associated the delimitations...

Lopez-Feldman, A.
Published: 2014

This paper examines the effects of household- and village-level characteristics on environmental reliance and participation in resource extraction decisions. Unlike previous analyses that used case studies or regional samples, I use a nationally...

Human–carnivore conflict has profound impacts on carnivore populations and lives of rural communities. In Tanzania, African lions (Panthera leo) have attacked over 1000 people in the last twenty years. We developed a...

Znajda, S.K.
Published: 2014

The lack of clear indications of success in integrated conservation and development projects has resulted in strong criticisms of these projects, and a call for the return to conservation activities that exclude local communities. Impeding this...

Lechner, A.M., Raymond, C.M., Adams, V.M., Polyakov, M., Gordon, A.
Published: 2014

Recent conservation planning studies have presented approaches for integrating spatially referenced social (SRS) data with a view to improving the feasibility of conservation action. We reviewed the growing conservation literature on SRS data,...

Published: 2014

Deforestation and degradation are tied to a complex array of socioeconomic and political factors. Many assume that among the most important of these are the particular bundles of rights regulating who can benefit from land (tenure form) and the...

Published: 2014

Bushmeat hunting, i.e., the hunting of wildlife for consumption, is a widespread and well-researched phenomenon. Here, we add to the literature on the factors that explain household engagement in hunting by asking how situational factors...
