Contribution of Non-Timber Forest Products to Cash and Non-Cash Income of Remote Forest Communities in Central Africa
The authors investigate the contribution of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) to local community incomes within jointly-managed forest landscapes in Central Africa.
Research Goals & Methods
Data were collected from Bantu and indigenous persons' (IP) households using the Poverty-Forests Linkages Toolkit method.
Conclusions & Takeaways
Bantu communities derive higher total proportion of income from NTFPs than do IPs in the study area, though variation exists.
