Links between biodiversity conservation, livelihoods and food security : the sustainable use of wild species for meat

Complete Title: 
Links between biodiversity conservation, livelihoods and food security : the sustainable use of wild species for meat
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

The global use of wild animals for meat is now the primary illegal activity in many protected areas, and growing human populations and a lack of livelihood options suggest that demand for wild meat is likely to continue to rise. This Occasional Paper contains the background information presented to participants at a workshop jointly organized by IUCN, FAO and TRAFFIC in Yaoundé, Cameroon. The workshop aimed to forge functional links among the various stakeholders concerned with the unsustainable use of wild fauna for food, and it contains the communiqué and a summary of the discussions related to problems and solutions.
