Listening to Local Voices

By Martin Fowlie
‘Livelihoods and the environment at Important Bird Areas: Listening to local voices’, is the result of a number of ‘Participatory Poverty Assessments’ carried out by BirdLife Partners in fourteen nations across the Americas, Africa and Asia. The report presents the findings of these assessments, giving new information on the lives of local people at Important Bird Areas (IBAs), their perceptions and experiences of poverty and the role of the environment in people’s lives. The report can be downloaded here.
