The CIFOR-led Poverty and Environment Network (PEN) has been in operation since 2004. To date, some US$1 million has been invested in this initiative by external donors. These include DFID-ESRC, Danida and AMA-BASIS. Researchers working in 24 countries completed data collection in 2010, meticulously quantifying household incomes and gathering other livelihoods-focused data using a standard protocol. A pan-tropical database containing information on 8000+ households and 60 forested sites, a groundbreaking initiative in both content and scope, is currently being analysed.
