The overall mission of the Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (PCLG) is to promote better understanding of the linkages between biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction in order to improve policy and practice.

The learning group pursues its mission through a range of activities, these include:

Knowledge sharing

The PCLG carries out a range of knowledge sharing activities to ensure that our members are always up to date with the latest conservation and poverty developments. Read more about our activities and how to get the most from our resources.

Research and advocacy

Where possible the Learning Group will support - or engage in - research and advocacy initiatives that are in line with our core mission of better understanding and fostering learning on poverty-conservation linkages. The PCLG's current research has a thematic focus on the links between great ape conservation and poverty.

Events and meetings
