Bibliographic database

With 2127 titles, this bibliographic database once provided a comprehensive list of published literature on conservation-poverty linkages. The database was maintained from 2012 - 2016 and was updated monthly with those journal articles and publications that were featured in PCLG News and PCLG Journal Digest. You can search for publications by key word or by theme, and you can download the database into excel.

Note this database has not been updated since 2016. We do, however, maintain an offline archive of publications that we include in the PCLG News and PCLG Digest, and if you would like to see this archive to inform your research then get in contact and we can share this with you.
