This study looks into NTFP extraction across the Eastern Arc Mountains, using information from multiple datasets relating to the behaviour of 2000 households, presenting an extensive scale and a spatially explicit analysis. The approach involved 4 steps : estimating household production function, of NTFP collection, transferring this function across the total study area, aggregating household level extraction over all the households in the study area and turning NTFP quantities into economic value.
