Description

This article is written in English, with abstracts in French and Spanish.

  • The authors investigated the role of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) in contributing to income of local communities within jointly managed forest landscapes in Central Africa.
  • They found that cash and non-cash income differed for different groups, and that overall bushmeat was the most important NTFP for generating income in the areas studied.
