Title Improving the evidence base on the effectiveness of forest conservation and rural livelihood initiatives in delivering social and ecological benefits
Forest Biodiversity
Biodiversity for Development


Despite growing interest in ensuring that forest conservation and rural development activities deliver multiple benefits, there is a lack of rigorous evidence on the extent to which these activities deliver both conservation and livelihood outcomes. Policy makers, donors,  and practitioners need credible assessments of how conservation and sustainable development initiatives affect forest cover, biodiversity conservation,  family livelihoods and human well-being, so that they can improve the design and delivery of policies and programs that deliver multiple benefits. In this session we highlight the need for rigorous impact assessment of the conservation and livelihood outcomes from forest conservation and rural development activities, provide examples of methodologies and approaches that have been used to improve the scientific evidence base, and discuss how such information can help contribute to both the design of more effective conservation and sustainable development initiatives.

Speakers will include representatives from CI, GEF, IIED, and CIFOR
