Mechanism by which biodiversity affects poverty:
Biodiversity component details:
Intervention employed other:
Development in the use of the natural resources so that they can be utilised in a sustainable fashion resulting in conservation and development goals being reached.
Measure of poverty impact used:
Assessment of impact on poverty:
Evidence assesses the scale of impact:
Scale of impact details:
As of 2007 training on handicraft production had been given to 200 of the 250 families living in the protected area, and they were employed in the production of handbags, mats and clothing made from Lepironia. . The expected income of a mat-making labourer is now 30,000 VND (US$1.86) per day, while one making handbags can earn 50,000VND (US$3.10), This is compared to the average income of people producing Lepironia goods before the project intervention of 8,000 to 10,000 VND per day.
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:
Lepironia can be used to weave a number of products that can be sold at markets to generate a cash income.
Evidence provides measure of poverty impact:
Evidence is site-specific:
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:
The grasslands support a wide array of species diversity of both plants and animals.
Does the evidence mention the general poverty status of the country/region?:
Site poverty status described:
Does the evidence discuss the governance regime at the site?:
Does the evidence describe the poverty/socioeconomic status of the site?:
The community along with the state make jointly make the decisions regarding management of the protected area.
What is the resource rights regime?:
Resource rights regime details:
The wetlands are open to all members of the community, they are trying to enforce a rule stating no none community members may utilise the wetlands for Lepironia harvesting.
What is the land tenure regime?:
Land tenure regime details:
Stated owned but community managed.
Does the evidence mention the power relations?:
Does the evidence consider possible trade-offs/costs as well as benefits?:
