Markets and incentives in livelihoods and landscapes strategy : using economic and financial tools to sustain forest livelihoods and landscapes
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

The Livelihoods and Landscapes Strategy (LLS) seeks to influence the ways in which forests are managed and used. It intends to leverage real and meaningful improvements in the livelihoods of the rural poor, enhance biodiversity conservation, and ensure the sustainable supply of forest goods and services. These goals are founded on a strong recognition of the close relationship between people’s economic wellbeing, and the status and integrity of forests. As described in this publication, economic factors have an extremely important influence on forest livelihoods and landscapes. The Markets & Incentives theme of LLS aims to identify how economic and financial tools can be used to support more sustainable forest use and management, while also increasing the incomes and livelihood security of the rural poor.
