Abstract

While species conservation (bio-diversity) is a global public good, it can be frustrated by populations living at subsistence level whose condition of life precludes such environmental concern. However, this apparent trade-off between poverty reduction and bio-diversity conservation is largely false. Moreover, it could be avoided, or at least much reduced, by the introduction of some basic policy reforms relating to land management and conservation.
