'Just wildlife?' Or a source of local development?

Briefing/policy papers

This paper examines whether and how wildlife is a source of rural growth and development in East Africa, and whether its potential could be tapped more fully. It focuses particularly on the wildlife tourism industry, pulling together issues from a range of work and comparisons from Southern Africa, rather than presenting conclusive results based on detailed research specific to this topic. As such, it raises many questions, and is intended to stimulate further debate.
