Wild life, wild livelihoods

Complete Title: 
Wild life, wild livelihoods : involving communities in sustainable wildlife management and combatting the illegal wildlife trade
Non IUCN Publication



This report synthesizes insights and lessons from decades of experience in community wildlife management (CWM), supplementing this with insights from more recent work focused on community-level responses to tackling the current illegal trade in wildlife (ITW) “crisis”. Building on the insight that community “voice” is a critical determinant of a policy regime that supports their effective engagement, the report further reviews the opportunities for indigenous peoples and local communities (IPLCs) to participate in key relevant international deliberations and decision-making arenas, and the barriers they face.
