  10. 10. Forest and Poverty THINKING beyond the canopy
  11. 11. 1 Forest and Poverty Activity Findings • Millions of poor living in so-called ‘low’ forest areas who rely on forests for a portion of their income • High poverty rate is often linked with high severity of poverty (high poverty gap) and long duration of poverty (chronic poverty) • Although the proportion of all poor people living in high forest areas may be low, the absolute numbers will be high in some countries. • There is relatively high dependence on forests for livelihoods in areas of high forests and high poverty rate ->to promote forest resources as part of the poverty alleviation strategy THINKING beyond the canopy
  12. 12. Congo, DRC Zambia 2 Forestry and Mining Linkage Activity Objectives • Understand the relationship between mining operations, forest management practices and livelihoods (both forest-based and urban population) in the Copper Belt, particularly in the copper mining areas of Zambia and DR Congo. THINKING beyond the canopy
  13. 13. Mining and Forestry Linkage THINKING beyond the canopy
  14. 14. 2 Forestry and Mining Linkage Activity Findings • There are severe damage that mining activities have caused to the vegetation cover and the environment. • Water is polluted, the land for agricultural production is degraded, natural vegetation and crops are affected, human health is at risk and forest biodiversity is being eroded THINKING beyond the canopy
  15. 15. Papua, Indonesia 3 Natural Resources Participatory Mapping Activity Objectives • Capturing local perceptions on landscape and natural resources, and local priorities in terms of development, land use and land tenure THINKING beyond the canopy
  16. 16. Natural Resources Participatory Mapping THINKING beyond the canopy
  17. 17. Natural Resources Participatory Mapping THINKING beyond the canopy
  18. 18. Natural Resources Participatory Mapping THINKING beyond the canopy
  19. 19. 3 Natural Resources Participatory Mapping Activity Findings • Local perception is one of important aspect in protected area management • The maps are useful to communicate between local people, local government and conservation practitioners THINKING beyond the canopy
  20. 20. Ongoing Activities • Research data management system (infrastructure, policy, procedure) • Data integration (corporate data & research data) including integrating spatial data with corporate data THINKING beyond the canopy
