Type of study:
Mechanism by which biodiversity affects poverty:
Biodiversity component details:
Agro forestry products like plantain, pineapple and a variety of tree fruits such as umarll (Poraquieiba serica), cashew and uvilla (Pourouma cecropifolia).
Residents harvest products from the rainforest in north eastern Peru for subsistence use and selling for income. The income obtained used to buy essential household goods and other uses. The study focused on the income generated from the sale of the products.
Measure of poverty impact used:
% of market value income.
Assessment of impact on poverty:
Evidence assesses the scale of impact:
Sustainability of biodiversity use:
Attribute of biodiversity affecting poverty:
Does the evidence relate to a specific intervention?:
How does the mechanism affect poverty?:
It generates income/tradeable surplus
Mechanism affects poverty precisely how:
The harvested products are sold in order to generate income that is used for purchasing essential household goods and services.
Evidence provides measure of poverty impact:
Evidence is site-specific:
Research method details:
Household interviews were conducted for 501 households.
Unit of analysis and sample size:
Does the evidence mention the general biodiversity status of the country/region?:
Does the evidence describe the biodiversity status of the site?:
Site biodiversity status described:

Does the evidence mention the general poverty status of the country/region?:
Does the evidence discuss the governance regime at the site?:
Does the evidence describe the poverty/socioeconomic status of the site?:
What is the resource rights regime?:
Resource rights regime details:
Resource rights regime not described.
What is the land tenure regime?:
Land tenure regime details:
Land tenure not described.
Does the evidence mention the power relations?:
Does the evidence consider possible trade-offs/costs as well as benefits?:
Measure of poverty impact tag:
Distribution impacts considered:
Duration of impact considered:
Outcome replicable elsewhere considered:
Thresholds/boundary limits/tipping points of achieving the outcome considered:
How costs and benefits/impacts might vary across different spatial scales considered:
