Role of bushmeat in food security and nutrition

This presentation highlights the importance of bushmeat for the food security, nutrition and income of rural and urban populations in the Amazon and Congo Basins. Following an introduction on the size and nature of the bushmeat value chain, we show the potential ecological, economical and nutritional crises if we pursue unsustainable practices. We then propose a portfolio of solution around a more sustainable supply, a reduced demand and a conducive enabling environment at national and international levels.

Financial and economic values of bushmeat in rural and urban livelihoods in Cameroon: Inputs to the development of public policy

Traditional wildlife hunting has been described mainly from studies of local practices and from the monitoring of urban bushmeat markets. However, the overall value chain connecting hunters to end consumers remains largely unknown, thus preventing any estimate of the actual socio-economic importance of the bushmeat sector. On the basis of existing literature, this talk provides an order of magnitude for the financial and economic benefits of the bushmeat commodity chain in Cameroon. This presentation was given by Guillaume Lescuyer and Robert Nasi of CIFOR at the 53rd Annual Meeting of the Association of Tropical Biology and Conservation.

Wildlife: a forgotten and threatened resource

The harvest of forest wildlife provides invaluable benefits to local people, but understanding of such practices remains fragmentary. With global attention drawn to the issue of declining biodiversity, this talk assesses the consequences, both for ecosystems and local livelihoods, of the loss of important forest resources, and alternative management options. This presentation was given by Robert Nasi of CIFOR at the 53rd Annual Meeting of the Association of Tropical Biology and Conservation.
