The Earthscan reader in poverty and biodiversity conservation ( Book )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 188 libraries worldwide
"In the last decade biodiversity loss and persistent poverty in developing countries have been recognised as major international problems that require urgent attention. However, the nature and scale of the links between these two problems, and between efforts to address them, has been the subject of much heated debate. Understanding the different elements of this debate is critical if we are to move towards constructive solutions. This reader provides a guide to, and commentary on, the different strands of the current conservation-poverty debate through a selection of key readings from both the conservation and development literature including policy documents, journal articles and reports. The breadth of material will help readers, including both students and professionals, to locate current debates within their wider contexts. Among the areas of debate covered are: the lack of attention to biodiversity concerns in international development policy; the social implications of protectionist conservation policy; the roles and responsibilities of conservation NGOs towards local communities; and the links between climate change, biodiversity and poverty reduction, and in particular the implication of discussions around reduced emissions from deforestation (REDD) as a climate change mitigation strategy"--Publisher's description
Biodiversity conservation and poverty alleviation : exploring the evidence for a link by Dilys Roe( Book )
14 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 154 libraries worldwide
"Biodiversity conservation and poverty alleviation are both important societal goals demanding increasing international attention. While they may seem to be unrelated, the international policy frameworks that guide action to address them make an explicit assumption that conserving biodiversity will help to tackle global poverty. Part of the Conservation Science and Practice Series published with the Zoological Society of London, this book explores the validity of that assumption. The book addresses a number of critical questions: which aspects of biodiversity are of value to the poor? Does the relationship between biodiversity and poverty differ according to particular ecological conditions? How do different conservation interventions vary in their poverty impacts? How do distributional and institutional issues affect the poverty impacts of interventions? How do broader issues such as climate change and the global economic system affect the biodiversity - poverty relationship at different scales?"--Publisher's description

Biodiversity and Development Co-operation ( Article )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
This paper considers how development co-operation is addressing the twin objectives of biodiversity conservation and sustainable use on the one hand, and development and poverty reduction on the other. It outlines how development co-operation can a) support mainstreaming biodiversity and ecosystem services into development; b) manage for results, particularly across trade-offs and synergies; c) incorporate monitoring and evaluating approaches into biodiversity-related development co-operation activities; and d) better align and harmonise providers' activities with partner country priorities. The paper showcases examples of how development co-operation is supporting conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystem services. It also identifies areas where more research is needed, such as sharing experience with the tools and good practices available for successful mainstreaming, and developing indicators to improve monitoring and evaluation to boost understanding of the effectiveness of biodiversity-related development interventions and of the relative performance of different mainstreaming approaches

Biodiversity and poverty : ten frequently asked questions - ten policy implications by Dilys Roe( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction are two of the most pressing global challenges of our time. Bu could the solutions to these challenges be mutually reinforcing? Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) have long called for improved integration of these two issues. However there is a diversity of opinion as to the nature and scale of biodiversity conservation-poverty reduction links, a vast number of claims and counter-claims, and often very patchy evidence on which to base assertions. This paper aims to cut through the confusion by providing answers to 10 frequently asked questions (FAQs) and highlighting the resulting policy implications

Climate, carbon, conservation and communities : an IIED/WWF briefing ( file )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The growing market for carbon offers great opportunities for linking greenhouse gas mitigation with conservation of forests and biodiversity, and the generation of local livelihoods. For these combined objectives to be achieved, strong governance is needed along with institutions that ensure poor people win, rather than lose out, from the new challenges posed by climate change. This briefing paper explores the opportunities from and limitations to carbon-based funds for conservation and development. It highlights mechanisms that may help secure benefits for climate, conservation and communities -- Publisher website
