CIFOR’s Poverty and Environment Network (PEN) was launched in September 2004. The core of PEN is the tropics-wide collection of uniform socio-economic and environmental data at household and village levels by 33 partners, generating a global database from 24 countries. The data collection includes a careful recording of all forest and environmental uses, quantifying the overall importance of environmental income to rural livelihoods in developing countries.
This infographic breaks down PEN’s research questions and results, including details of the forest as safety net, who collects forest products and how important forest income is for rural households.
