Wild Meat, Livelihoods Security and Conservation in the Tropics

This project is funded by a grant from the MacArthur Foundation, and researched the human and social dimensions of hunting for consumptive use in tropical forests, including bushmeat and the bushmeat trade. It sought to place this in its wider context, as an important dimension of livelihoods security for poor people, often in weak states. It provided a useful counterpoint to the dominant research on this theme, which is usually from a fauna conservation, not human livelihoods, perspective.
