Who benefits, how much? How to adequately measure human welfare impacts in forest conservation initiatives


Human well-being effects are often crucial to the success of forest conservation initiatives. For instance, a new protected area may reduce local people’s access to some forest extractive incomes, but might also safeguard other livelihood benefits. On aggregate, well-being effects may be hard to measure reliably. Specific methods developed by CIFOR, IUCN, PROFOR and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), respectively, to assess forests benefits will be examined and explored.
