Applying economic tools at the local level of biodiversity conservation

Using economic mechanisms in community biological resource management

Local communities face similar economic problems as the rest of the country. As a result, communities living close to or in conservation areas regard environmental protection as a threat to their livelihood. It is important to ensure that local people have as much access to the protected areas as possible and at the same time help them find a more sustainable way of life and doing business. Support should therefore be concentrated on transforming the community's life without affecting the economic situation and without foregoing protection of the environment.
